Internal Hosted Website / Database

Last Modified: 2016-04-30
Dear All
I wonder if you can assist me, I’m about to implement a server which will be running IIS for website Database and wanted to know what would be best practice in regards to IP address and DNS? This is to run a HR database which will be accessible to internal user over the WAN either by a subdomain or by domain.com/database. I know that I will have to point an IP to the server but I want to make it as secure as possible and am not sure how to achieve this. I ask as I know that anyone will be then be able to search the IP.

Current Infrastructure:
DL308 GEN 9
Cisco Meraki MX80
1x Static IP

If you could let me know you thoughts I’d be grateful.
