Okay, I have a server, (Windows Server 2008 R2 to be more precise) and I have installed PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, for web hosting purposes.
- I have set up a static ip address internally.
- I have installed the role DNS and Web Server (IIS) role.
- I now set up my forward looking zone as my chosen domain.
- I set up the nameservers as ns1.domain.co.uk with my IP address which I found from whatismyip.org.
However, when I type my IP address, it times out with an error (Timeout Error). Am I doing something wrong? Am I missing something? Also I have seen that most websites have multiple nameservers, which are apparently mirror IP addresses which all redirect to one IP address.
Also, I can locally connect using the IP address 192.168.0.8, however, I want to put my website online/live on the internet.
Can anyone help me with this?
