how to dns - with 2 hosts.

I think that is the best I can do as far as a title. What I am trying to say is that I own a domain. blahblah.com. I have my www website hosted by a hosting company. I now also have RWW. I would like staff.blahblah.com. What do I need to ask my hosting company to do?

Hi roy_batty,

If you have a static IP addresss, then you need to have a HOST "A" record added to your zone file at the hosting company.  Such that staff.blahblah.com points to your PUBLIC IP address of your server.  (host records allow you to have virtually unlimited hosts in different locations).

You will most likely want them to add an MX record as well so that you can receive email in your exchange server (much better than using the pop3 connector).  Here's an article about that:  http://sbsurl.com/pop2smtp

If you have a dynamic IP address, then you'll need to use a dynamic IP service such as http://no-ip.com or http://dyndns.com.
