    Angry How to configure DNS Server for domain name as well as subdomain name

    Hi Guys,

    My company designed a web portal where people will come and design their web sites.

    REQUIREMENT:
    Suppose my website is = www.mysite.com
    If user1 come and design his web site so his temporary address should be www.user1.mysite.com.

    CONCLUSION:
    I mean in all cases= www.*.mysite.com request should come to my IP. So our developers will mange accordingly

    If later on user1 wants his own web address then www.user1.com should also be map to my (single) IP address, which Im already using for www.mysite.com.

    I do not have much idea about DNS Server.

    I am using window 2000 advance server without Active Directory.
    Network Identification
    Full Computer Name= ComputerName.MySite.com
    Primary DNS Suffix= mysite.com
    Member of = WorkGroup (No Domain)


    Guys Can you explain me which steps in need to take.
    Do I need to configure Active Directory before installing DNS Server?
    How can I configure DNS which fulfill my requirement?

    thanks
    Farooq

    Well, one thing is to make sure web services is intalled (IIS), and you'll probably need to do some port forwarding as well. If everyone's sharing your primary IP, you'll need to separate on which port each site directs to.

    IIS and DNS have nothing to do with each other, and I would guess that if this is a webserver already hosting one site at the root domain it will already have IIS installed anyway.

    Now is this for a public server that should be accessible over the internet, or internal only? If public you will need to make the DNS changes with the registrar, not internal DNS.
