Need more info..

is your IIS server your DNS server?
are you creating the proper DNS record on the DNS server.
In your IP settings is your DNS server set as

for a work around you could change your "hosts" file to reflect the IP..

and lastly
try to run this from the command prompt.

ipconfig /flushdns
and then ping your hostname that you are trying to resolve.

the requested requires elevation (not sure what that means)
you have to edit the "hosts" file located in: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
