How do i point an internal name

I want a user to be able to type a single name into a browser and have DNS direct it to an internal web server.


If they type "support" in a browser, I want it to go to our internal support web page. How do I set this up properly in DNS?

In the DNS Console:

1. Expand Forward Lookup Zones
2. Select
3. Right click and select New Host (A) or New Alias (CNAME) record
4. Enter the name "support" and either the IP or Name of the destination (depending on which you choose)

At this point you have a record like this:

However, because clients joined to the domain will have a Primary DNS Suffix set to they will be able to resolve "support" as a single-label in the same way that you can for your machines.

That's it really, if support is the only website on the web server then no further action is required.
