  • External DNS record

    Hi all,

    I need to add an DNS entry for an external website. I have been given the website and the IP address, along with the ports (HTTP and SSL).

    How do i do this? I have AD Integrated DNS.

    Should i make a new Zone? The domain name is public.
    Do i use forwarders?

    I haven't had to do this in a while and I've forgotten how to do it.

    Thanks!!!!!

    More information required. Where is the DNS for the internet domain held? Is your internal AD domain name the same as the public domain name (not recommended)? Do you need to add the record to make the service available to external or internal users?

      The website that i need to add is another companies website. I guess they don't publish that DNS record publicly. The other companies website needs to be accesible from inside my company only. So I don't think its an ISP DNS addition.

      We have an internal DNS server for the Corporate Domain. Our ISP houses the internet DNS. The Internal domain name is not the same as the External name.

      Let me know if you need more info.

      Thanks!

        If the website you need access to is wibble.domain.com, then do the following:

        1) Create a forward lookup zone for domain.com
        2) Create an A record for wibble with the IP address they give you

        You don't need port information for DNS.

          Hi this is great.... i forgot to mention one more thing. these are the formats of the external websites:

          https://server.domain.com/folder1/
          https://server.domain.com/folder2/webpage.aspx

          Would DNS forwarding be used for this?


          thanks!!

            Well, this would be the domain name;
            server.domain.com

            At least, Server is the host and domain.com is the domain name.
            The rest is up to you and not important for DNS
