after leaving all the set up to a 3rd party provider in the past at work, I have decided to give it a go, and set up a network at home.
I have a work retired HP ML110, running OEM SBS2003 all installed, 2 x NIC (1 x WAN 1 x LAN)
Telstra Cable connection, newly installed.
Domain name registered with discount domains.co.nz
I really need to know what I need to set up at each point.
Would like to start at discount domains, and work my way through, so I can get traffic into my new domain (I will call it abc.co.nz)
First question is do I leave the name servers at discount domains as theirs, or make it my DC? Which I will call moes.abc.co.nz?
And then do I need to have Telstra change any records at their end?
And lastly, depending on the above questions, what do I need to change on my DNS/Exchange SMTP settings?
As I haven’t done this before, and have a basic understanding of DNS, I would really apreciate some help.
I have done a quick search of previous DNS topics, but there doesn’t seem to be anything that matches all my components.
I know it would have probably been easier to get the domain name registered and hosted by the ISP, but I was previously with Vodafone, (when I registered the domain name) and have only just moved to Telstar, and installed the DC at the same time.
