I have a windows 2012 dns server and configured only companydomain.local.

our ISP suggested that must be  one more Zone with (.com addresse) like  companydomain.com.

How can i do ? Its our main Domain controller should i before do something consider?

Thank you so much

for certain services like exchange you will need it since it will need to refer to .com address
is there a reason for having a .com internal zone?

internal users can still use the .local address
however, anything that uses SSL (like exchange) with a certificate using the .com address you need split dns

You can delete the new zone if you experience problems, but I have to ask, are you experiencing any problems currently, without the .com zone? It may be completely unnecessary in your environment.

Without that zone, your internal machines will use an external DNS server to resolve companydomain.com names (unless they're cached on your internal DNS server), and those names will resolve to external IP addresses. This can lead to traffic coming from your internal network and hitting the external interface of your router, which some routers don't like (though many of them can be configured to accept this).

The point of setting up split DNS is so that your internal machines can resolve those public names to internal IP addresses. Using the example you mentioned above, inside your internal companydomain.com zone, you'd create a host record named exchange and give it the private address of your Exchange server. This way, your internal machines could access the server using the exchange.companydomain.com name (which may be necessary to avoid SSL certificate warnings, as Seth alluded to above), but the name would resolve to the private IP of the server, so traffic from internal machines to the server doesn't have to go through the router.

There's nothing wrong with creating the .com zone; it's just important to know what it's used for.
