Different sites charge different amounts. That's the site I've used for years and thought it could help. I have no affiliation with them other than using them in the past. – TheCleaner Feb 25 '14 at 16:09

I'll opt for 2) since you might want to cover:

  • server host name itself
  • AD host name
  • mail server name
  • maybe different host name for your OWA

You'll want

  • OWA name
  • external host name
  • internal netbios names for exchange servers
  • (for Outlook clients to autoconfig without errors)

You should include yourdomain.local versions as well if that's something you use internally.
