  • Web Server

    Hello Friends, I am having a machine running as web server on windows server 2008 R2. I am connected to internet and bought static public ip address too. So, Now when I am browsing that web server with the public ip address from some where else; its working. I am having as problem to resolve this ip address with the website name. I want to open the webserver with a name instead of ip address.

    Please help me to solve this problem.

    Go to your public DNS control panel (at your ISP?) and create a record e.g. www.domain.com pointing to the public IP address

    If you don't have an existing domain, there are many people who will sell you one

      For this you need to register a domain name and point the Nameservers at the domain registrar to your public IP address.

      Few domain registrar service providers are godaddy, register.com ..

            When you bought the domain, you should have been given a link to manage it
            (different providers have different panels)

              Re: Web Server

              Once you get a new domain name from any of these service providers, they will give you a control panel where you can add the DNS entries such as NS, A and MX.

              Create new nameserver entries and append the same nameserver entries at your local DNS server.
