DNS record for company domain name


G

Guest

My internal domain name (netbios name) is mydomain.com and my external domain
name is mydomain.com. Our web site is hosted at a hosting service so I can
put in an A record on the internal DNS server for www so that users on the
internal lan can access the company web site at http://www.mydomain.com .

How do I create a DNS record so that they can also get to the company web
site by going to http://mydomain.com without the www in fornt of it ?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, you can't the record for the domain name must give the IP
addresses of the domain controllers only.

The only work around is to install a web site on your domain controllers
that redirect the site to http://www.mydomain.com Then you must be careful
to use only relative links in the site because any link that uses
http://mydomain.com/anyotherpage will get sent back to the home page.
