how to redirect a website request using DNS
Posted on 2011-03-22
I have just taken over a support contract for a company.
The previous IT guy (in his infinite wisdom) made the local windows 2003 domain companyname.com (where companyname is the companys real website address!)
he had got around this issue by putting an entey somewhere in the dns (i assume - idonmt know for sure) which forwards any local requests for the compnay website out to the company who host it.
the company have recently change their website hosting comapny so now any local requests for the website go the old website. ican add an entry to the loca hosts file directing the website to the new ip address and this works fine. i dont want to have to do this for all pc's so i would be very grateul if someone could tell me where i can do this centrally.
