DNS server, adding dns for internal website on another domain

Posted on 2007-08-03
Last Modified: 2013-11-30
We just setup an internal webserver and we have it hosting a few sites.  2 of the 3 sites we have dns setup for the domains.  the last one that we just setup we don't currently host dns for it, i was wondering if there was a way to point a single entry to a specific server or do i need to create a new domain then set it up there.

i hope that makes sense... something like this, - we are hosting dns - we are hosting dns - currently not setup because all we need to specify is one server.

    You could use a host file if I understand your question correctly.

    If there is a DNS entry somewhere for, then you could add a conditional forwarder for and pointing to the DNS server which hosts the entry.

    Assuming there is no DNS server hosting the entry anywhere, you could create your own zone for and just add an A record for www with the appropriate IP address.
