I have added a new internal website but can't get it to resolve while internal on our network.  Externally, everything works fine.


Our main company website:

Our new internal site:

I have added a new Host (A) record under the zone as follows:

Name - newsite
Type - Host (A)
Data - Internal IP of server

Now, internally I can get to resolve but not

What DNS record do I need to add so that both of the names will resolve will on our internal network.

    Assisted Solution

    You said you "added a new Host (A) record under the zone".  But since you say you are able to get to, then it means you added the record to the zone.

    If you really want, you can add a new (sub-)domain under the zone, then add the A record for www in the sub-domain.  This might be preferable if you plan on having more than one record in the domain.

    If you just have the one record, you can also do as ve3ofa mentioned above.
