DNS Resolution

By ltfaiivae ·
I have a web application that is accessible from the Internet using it's public IP address and from within the intranet using the private IP address. How can resolve this to a domain name using windows 2003 server standard?

Internal or External?

Your ISP would need to create a record pointing the dns name you want to your public IP. Internally, you would create an A record in your DNS server.

I am really new at this and was wondering how could I create an A record on my DNS server?

Yes

If you create the A record on your DNS server it will work for only your network. To be able to access "webapp.mydomain.com" from the internet, whomever hosts your "mydomain.com" will need to create an A record in their DNS server to point "webapp.mydomain.com" to your public IP address. It is something you can't do because it needs to be in the public DNS servers.
