Configuring DNS Server for Multiple webs

By joel_gar ·
Hi All,

I have hosted around 16 websites on IIS 4.0 with the single ip address.
Now how do i configure the DNS Server on Windows NT 4.0 for all the 16 websites with the single ip address ?

Can Somebody help me in configuring the dns server for all the 16 websites with the single ip address ?

Please reply

Regards

Joel

Hi!

Start the DNS admin tool open up your server and open the net where your WWW server resides.

Then do this:
Right click in the left window on the domain name under which your www server resides and first add a host. Let's say it's called WWW.HOME.COM

Now for each other name you want to point to the same name create an alias by right clicking on your domain again, but this time you choose New Post, It's the choice right under New Host.

Now you'll get a dialog where in the left window you can choose what kin of entry you wanna create there you should choose CNAME and then you will get two text boxes with Alias Name and DNS Name, in the alsia field type for example:
MYWWW and in the DNS fiels type WWW, now if you try and surfto WWW.HOME.COM and MYWWW.HOME.COM you'll end up on the same server.

A little bit too descriptive maybe, but I promise it will work.

Previous answer addresses multiple site in the same domain. If you have several domains that you are servicing with this web server (www.company1.com, www.company2.com, etc.), you'll have to establish separate DNS zones for each of these domains and map them back to the same IP address.
