Domain

I have a situation:
- I have domain name: xxx.com hosting on RegisterDomain.com for Web & Email server
- In our company: i have Active Directory (AD)on DL360 & Firewall (ISA)on DL320. I intent to configure AD with domain name: xxx.com (the same domain that i registered).
So our staff will login with domain xxx.com and I know that what happened if user using IE to enter www.xxx.com and set SMTP: xxx.com in Outlook?

Re: Domain

Tran:

Internally, you will have a DNS server. On your dns server, you may need to make manual entries for the website and webmail. Assuming the IP address does not change, you should not have any issues.


Another thing you can do is make your domain name something slightly different...

perhaps ad.xxx.com or similar. You then may be able to set up a forwarder on your DNS server to the hosting sites' dns so that if your DNS does not answer with the IP.. it gets forwarded to the hosting company's DNS.
