Getting Domain Name to work on the Internet using Time Warner RoadRunner Connection & GoDaddy.com domain name
Posted on 2004-08-09
1)I have a domain name. For examples sake, we'll use the domain abcd.us . I registered it through GoDaddy.com and my internet connection is through Time Warner with a static IP address.
2)My server has a class C address, 192.168.2.100 . I have enabled port 53 for UDP and TCP on the firewall (which maps dynamically to my server) so I can use Microsoft DNS. Time Warner cable has hooked abcd.us up to the reverse look-up zone on their DNS servers because they don't provide named servers for DNS..only the ip address of the servers (that's what the tech support guy told me).
3)I have created the appropriate entries in the MS DNS forward lookup zone to create an A Host record for abcd.us
My problem is that I cannot get the A record to show up on the internet even though through GoDaddy.com's interface I have specified that the A record go to my static IP address. I've checked it through dnsstuff.com and I can't get it to work. What am I doing wrong??
