Currently we have an edu Institute that is hosting our external dns records. We currenttly host our own web servers but are moving them to a cloud provider. They are asking for a cname record to be created that points to their servers using our current address.
lets say our current web site is www.example.com
. We need to create a cname record on the dns record that points www.example.com
to webhost.com. We have created an A record for the webhost.com on our dns servers, but when I try to create a cname record it only creates an alias for webhost.com.example.com. Can the institute hosting our dns create another zone for webhost.com then create the cname? Is it possible to do redirection like this?
Windows 2008 DNS servers,
Any help is greatly appreciated.
