|I have two internal DNS servers running Windows 2003 that are configured for "active directory-integrated". My internal domain name is the same as our external domain name (I didn't set it up this way). Our website (www.company.com) is hosted by a third party provider. I have configured a Host record on my internal DNS servers that point all requests for www.company.com to the IP address of my website provider. This setup works fine, except when someone tries to access our website using only company.com (omitting the "www"). When a user tries to access our external website using the said method the result is "page cannot be displayed", which is to be expected since our DNS servers are considered athoritative for the company.com domain. I need to be able to access our externally hosted webiste by using the internal domain name (i.e. company.com), without including "www". I have read up about split-dns; however, I don't think this is really what I need, since I am not hosting any webservers internally that users need to access. |
My question is, how do I create the abililty to access our externally hosted website by using only the domain name, company.com (without the "www"), when our local domain name is the same as our external domain name?
