Solved Need a fully Qualified Name

January 2, 2013 at 14:01:02
Specs: windows server 2008
The name of the business is used by someone else in another state. They are on line so if I say server.www.abcd.com It would be theirs right?

✔ Best Answer
You would never write server.www.abcd.com because that is an invalid URL.

You can not just bring up a business domain name all on your own. It has to be registered first then it can be found on the internet.

Right, I know that. I stated it incorrectly maybe. I am setting up active directory and it wants me to put in a fqdn and the business name has been taken on the web by someone with a similar name. So what can I do to make the fqdn something that is not 20 letters long? The business is naah.

Thank You for your reply.

I think you may be confusing a local domain name with a public domain name.

If your business name is naah than you would use naah.local for your domain name. This is for internal use only.

Now if you wanted to have domain name email like joe@naah.com or do your own web hosting you would need a public registered domain name.

If all the naah's of com, net, org etc are used currently you would need a different name for your public domain.

As long as you understand .local can't be used on the internet as a public domain name. Might want to review some of the MS technet articles available online for a better understanding.
