  • How to Configure Windows Server 2003 DNS Services?

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    1. Click Start and point to Administrative Tools
    2. Click DNS to open the DNS MMC snap-in.
    3. In the navigation panel, click the DNS Server object for your server, right-click the server object, and then click Configure a DNS server to start the Configure DNS server Wizard.
    4. Click next, click one of the following options, and then click next:
    a.) Create a forward lookup zone (recommended for small networks)
    This server is authoritative for the DNS names for local resources but forwards all other queries to an ISP or other DNS servers. The Wizard will configure the root hints but not create a reverse lookup zone.
    b.) Create forward and reverse lookup zones (recommended for large networks)
    This server can be authoritative for forward and reverse lookup zones. It can be configured to perform recursive resolution, forward queries to other DNS servers, or both. The wizard configures the root hints.
    c.) Configure root hints only (recommended for advanced users only)
    The wizard configures the root hints only. You can configure forward and reverse lookup zones and forwarders later.
