Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello I have a windows 2008 server running DNS. everything is running good except for one problem. when i open an internet explorer window and type in companyname.com is thinks and then spits out a bing search page. I need it where when the users type in companyname.com it directs them to our internet website.

in DNS, I have the following setting but it does not seem to work:
DNS > forward lookup zone > fritzind.com > and then a www record (host A) that points to our webserver.

what am I doing wrong? I really need to get this working
