  • External IP addressing

    Hi Everyone,

    We have our own static IP address and would like to start hosting our own website on our web server. We have already configured IIS and the settings that are needed to run our website, but there is one more thing we need to do... configure the DNS.

    How would we go about setting up the DNS server with a static IP, is it possible?

    We also have a NAT enabled router, do we need to forward ports from there as well?

    Our DNS server also deals with internal requests as well which we have already setup. Our Server is running on Windows Server 2008.

    Thanks,
    Magic112

    yes, yo would need to forward port 80/tcp for the http, and 53/udp for dns.

    speak to whoever currently hosts your external dns for assistance on redirecting it
