Hi All, I hope you are well.
A web designer has designed a site that is hosted somewhere other than where the dns is for one of my customers
He has said that he needs to create a dns entry that will forward http://mydomain.com to http://www.mydomain.com, but he hasn’t got an ip address, only a name (somesite.somehost.com). the ip that this name eventually resolves to will change over time, hence the need for a name.
I effectively need to create a cname for the root of the domain, but obviously I cant do that.
I cant use a 301 redirect either, so I don’t know what to do.
I don’t want to move the dns from where it currently is if I can avoid it.
What I am thinking is I need a service that will give me a static ip address so I can set up a blank A record to point to it. That service will then translate the ip address to the name somesite.somehost.com
I was looking at webhops from dyn, but im not sure if that will work –
anybody got any advice please?
