This question already has an answer here:
I am a little confused on the proper active directory configurations for the forest root domain. Recommendations call for using corp.example.com or internal.example.com. However, what is the best practice if you own/manage example.com domain? (I own and manage example.com through PowWeb, a web hosting provider).
I want to be able to set up Exchange servers, Web Servers, and FTP servers within the internal (or Corp) network that will be accessible over the internet.
EDIT RELATED QUESTION: Let's say that I decide to use example.com as the root/forest domain in dcpromo.exe. Could I then create a domain corp.example.com, and have the same server that I ran dcpromo on join the corp.example.com domain?
Ultimately, my goal here is to have dcpromo create example.com in its DNS. If I make the root domain in the wizard corp.example.com, it won't create any entries in DNS for example.com.
NOTE: This would be the PRIMARY and FIRST domain controller in the network.
