I have a domain called testdomain.com. I also host mail on my internal Exchange server for testdomain.com. We have a second zone setup in Windows 2003 Server (dns) for this zone. My problem relates to people on the inside of our network cannot go to the web page: www.testdomain.com
. Due to the fact that this domain is the second domain being hosted on our network I simply created an A record for www to go to the public ip address where our website is hosted.
This still didn't work.
When I type in the ip address of the hosting companies ip for our website it goes to some other website. After talking to the hosting company they said that our site is simply not the default site for that ip. They indicated that typically the name of the website along with the ip is sent and that is how the hosting company answers back with the proper result. My issue then becomes how can I get our website to load for my internal group given the fact I can't send the domain name along with the request when a client goes to www.testdomain.com?
