Name public internet address same as internal domain name?
Posted on 2004-11-25
Ok, if you have an internet presence for a website(like microsoft.com), what do you call your internal Active Directory domain ? Do you call it microsoft.com as well?
Or do you call it something like internal.microsoft.com and make it a child domain?
What is the best practice?
At work, our public website is state.md.us
And our domain name is called state.md.us
Is "state.md.us" just an address for our website?. And since our domain controller is internal, we can call it the same thing. Right? Any complications to be made aware of (as far as DNS etc is concerned?)
