I have a domain with domain.tdl domain name, so I need to make DNS point www.domain.tdl outside to externally ISP hosted www.domain.tdl website.

How to do it? - I've gotten a bit confused.

Just create an 'A' record under the local domain.tld zone pointing to the correct external IP of the web server.

Yeah! :)

A DNS restart was wrong, A record it is.

Can I also FWD "." that is naked domain.tdl to the same IP using A record?

If your AD Domain Name wasn't domain.tld you could... but your question suggests the names are the same.

AD needs "domain.tld" for itself, you can't use it for your website without a pretty considerable amount of work. Making everyone use "www.domain.tld" is way easier ;)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

Do not point "." to external - you AD will have issues - just create an "A" record for  www only to point to external.

test with nslookup from xp client domain.tld should return your AD and www.domain.tld should return external.
