This is my first dedicated and I am plugging away at it.I am running windows server 2003 web edition and I have my database, website, and ftp setup and everything is working so far. Now if you go to 188.8.131.52 my site that I'm working on will show up. My question is my domain and site that I am in the process of moving is hosted on a shared server on 1and1. Now I need that domain to point to that ip. Do I need to set up name servers on the server? If so can someone point me in th right direction. I am just not sure what to do at this point and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Win 2003 Web Edition doesnt have a DNS server. You would have to use other DNS services to create an A record to point to your IP. '
After checking your site, I see that you're running .NET application....What you will have to do is this:
1. Create "A" record to point to your IP (there are tons of free DNS servers out there)
2. Open IIS...create a new website...Setup your path etc...then right click on your website and select properties....
On the Website tab where you see the IP Address textbox...click on the Advanced button...You should see Mutlitple Identities for this Website....click on Add and add 2 records...
IP - (All Unassigned)
TCP Port: 80
Host Header Value: YourDomainName.com
