We are looking into hosting our own email/website. We are running SBS 2003, here are some problems I am running into :
We have buisness class DSL with our current ISP so we have a static IP, however the ISP is telling me they do not provide Reverse DNS or smart hosting unless you get T1 line or better. However they did send me the attached document. Best I can tell is it show me how to setup smart hosting through a third party (Dnsexit.com). I have spoken with a local DSL provider and they can offer us Reverse DNS service for an extra $15 a month. Which option would be better, using this Dnsexit.com, or changing ISPs (and all the other setup changes that requires on our network)? or any other ideas?
For our website (it is a very low traffic informational website), I have read that you can but SHOULD NOT host your own website on an SBS server. Therefor my current plan is to setup a small DMZ on our router and putting one of our extra XP PRO machines with IIS in this DMZ. Then host the website on this machine and forward all HTTP traffic to it at router, while forwarding all HTTPS to our SBS server for OWA and RWW and the such. Does this seem like a good idea? or does anyone have a better idea?
