Windows Domain Creation with offsite web server
Posted on 2009-07-06
I am going to be setting up a new domain for a company rollover. Going to start from scratch using all new Windows 2008 servers. All servers will be in house except for the web server (DC, DNS, DHCP, WINS, Exchange etc.) Management has decided to go with an offsite web development company and they insist on hosting the site on their web servers due to ease of change, complexity etc..
So what do I need to watch for or do differently since this web server is offsite while I am creating this new domain environment? They will be only using the C Name of the domain name.
Can I still use the domainname.com and not have any issues? I really don't want to use domainname.local for example.
