I need to add a www.whatever.com address into a dns zone.  I'm not sure how to do this because the zone is setup with a fqdn like "yourcompany.com."

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a host record for yourcompany.com zone or for a completely different zone?

If you are talking about adding a "www" record to your own zone, just go into DNS and add a new Host record and call it www.  Set the IP address to the external IP address if it is hosted externally or set it to the internal IP address if hosted internally.

If you are wanting to add a "www" record to resolve to a different zone (like www.aol.com), I wouldn't recommend doing that, as you'll have to create a aol.com zone on your DNS server, which is pretty pointless and will be a big hassle.
