DNS zone

is it possible to setup/host an external domain(different to our internal domain) for eu.netdocuments.com. we can setup a static entry on our clients(windows7) to point to a static ip(given to us by netdocuments due to issues) and works but we now need to apply to all our clients. So rather than adding a hosts file to every individual client desktops I am sure we can do using our own internal DNS servers?

we have a windows server 2012 domain

please advise if possible, if so guidance how to do would be useful too

Yes you can.
Just create forward lookup zone in your internal DNS with name eu.netdocuments.com
Inside put A record pointing to your External domain IP

Refresh DNS on workstation and check if this works.
