I'd like to add an FQDN to our DNS server to resolve to a specific IP address. For example: (company-data) should resolve to 192.168.1.1
This works when I add it to the Windows host file, but I'd like to add it in DNS for all users to access.
I don't want to create A record in my local domain, as the users should only be able to browse to http:// company-data without including our local domain details.
I've tried creating a new zone (company-data) and adding an A record with a blank name (use parent domain name if blank), but it doesn't work when browsing or pinging (company-data)
However, when I create an A record "www" pointing to 192.168.1.1 in zone company-data, I can ping www.company-data no problem.
How can I get rid of the "www"?
