DNS configuration is what you do to setup the name server for either a website or for your computer. Domain name servers find the IP (Internet Protocol). Everything that connects to the internt has an IP address. IP addresses are for location the machine. They are of the form xyz.xyz.xyz.xyz where xyz is a number between 0 and 255. A domain name would be something like fixya.com, which is easier for people to remember than the numbers. A Domain Name server translates the name to the numbers. Your ISP has one to do the the translation for you. For a web server (computer that hosts a website like fixya.com, the webhost has a Domain Name Server that allows the computer that runs the webserver to be found. Configuration in that case would be to allow the website to find other sites, and to be found by other sites. For your computer, it would be like this, if you are running windows xp: Change DNS Settings in Windows XP

Web forwarding is a way for your domain to be pointed to another web
address or page. You can choose to have your domain name remain in the
address bar, which is called “framed web forwarding". Alternatively, you
can choose to display the new address, which is known as “non-framed
For Example if you own www.windowstipsclub.co.uk
and also www.windowstipsclub.com
and they are registered at different hosting websites then you can set
up web-forwarding on the first server to point to the domain where the
full website is.
Many companies do this that register the same website name on all the
domains if you also own www.windowstipsclub.net
this can also be setup to forward to your dot COM of the same name it
is a good idea however to host all the addresses at the same host you
may get discounts
You can access this on your weblog through the settings + publishing
tab and select either the google apps OR your own custom domain name
you will have to logon to the company that you used and change some of
the DNS settings to do this correctly.

Here are no-cost ways to fine-tune DNS for faster browsing.
There's a simple way you can get to Web sites faster, and it won't cost
you a penny. You can change the way your PC uses the Domain Name System
(DNS), the technology underlying all Web browsing.
Before you start, it's a good idea to get a basic understanding of how DNS works. When you type in a URL such as www.example.com,
that URL needs to be translated into a numeric IP address that Web
servers and Internet routers can understand. When you type in a URL, a
DNS server does the translation, from www.example.com to 188.8.131.52, for example.
An often used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it
serves as the "phone book" for the Internet by translating
human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses. For example,
www.example.com translates to 184.108.40.206.
DNS servers live on the Internet, and your computer contacts them
with the request to do that translation, which is commonly called name
resolution. When you use an ISP, your computer will automatically use
the default DNS servers specified by your ISP; you typically don't need
to set up DNS in any way. If you're on a corporate network, your
systems administrator may have set you up to use specific DNS servers.
If there's a delay in contacting the DNS server, or if the DNS
server takes too much time resolving the address, you'll face a delay
in getting to a Web site. So even if you've got the world's fattest
pipe, your Web surfing will be slowed down.
If you could speed up the name resolution in some way, you'd be able
to speed up your Web surfing. And that's exactly what I'll show you how
For a successful creation of website, you need a good domain name and host it. You can also take help of a reputed cheap web hosting company like Power Up Hosting, they use latest technology for fastest speed data transfer and backup with a high speed server such as litespeed web server.

In order to access your default web page remotely, port 80 "INBOUND" must be open to the internet.
To access your web server, two things need to happen.
The first is you or someone else must initiate a http request on port 80 using the public IP Address of your DSL connection.
Second, your router must forward that request to your servers internal ip address.
Ex. Lets say your public ip address is 220.127.116.11. In a browser window from a remote location, you enter the URL http ://18.104.22.168 The request will be sent to your router on port 80.
Your web server will not have the ip address 22.214.171.124 because it's on the private network side of your router. So, lets say the private ip address of you server is 192.168.1.100
You need to configure your router to take the http request coming from the internet on port 80 to ip address 126.96.36.199 and forward that request to 192.168.1.100. This is known as port forwarding.
You also need to configure the host header name of your "web page" so it knows it needs to display the web page.
Since we're just using ip addresses in this example and not an actual FQDN (fully qualified domain name), you would make a host header entry for the web page of 188.8.131.52.
To do this open IIS.
Navigate to the web site in question and right click on it then select properties.
On the website tab, ensure the port number is set to 80 and choose the appropriate internal ip address if you have more than one network adapter in the server.
Next click on the advanced tab and look for the heading Multiple identities for this site. This is where you enter the ip address 184.108.40.206.
If you have a fully qualified domain name, you would enter the domain name instead of the ip address as specified in this example.
Host header names are the key to running multiple websites from one physical server as long as it has the necessary horsepower to do so.
Hope this helps and isn't confising. If you're confused in any way, don't hesitate to ask for clarification.
Hello kindly try this steps and links in publishing your site on net.
Understand the basics. To publish a web site, you should
know what a web site must have to be published. A website has a unique
web address like www.google.com or www.yahoo.com. This is called a
domain name. Each domain name is registered with a DNS (Domain Name
Server), which identifies a domain name with a unique ID i.e. IP
address (A bunch of 4 groups of 3 digits each). Then, a web site must
have a webspace allocated to it. This is provided by a Web Server
maintained by many companies.
Look on the web if the name you want to register for website is still available i.e not registered by anyone. You can search for this on many websites like http://www.networksolutions.com etc. If the name is available, then go for it, or think over a new name.
Note the following. If the name is available, then you
should go to an Internet Service Provider and get the name of your
website registered. You'll get a unique IP address and domain name from
the same Internet Service Provider or another buy a web space for your
web site. A normal and usual website can be designed with 5 MB of Web
space. Depending on your requirement buy web space. There may be
generally two options one on a web server using Windows hosting or
Linux hosting. Linux hosting is generally cheaper. Also consider the
design of your web site and tools you are using to develop your web
pages. These should be available on the hosting web server.
Get your web pages designed and working on your own or by a professional web site designer.
Upload the contents of the web pages (files, Folders etc.) as it
is to the web server with FTP address, login and password provided by
hosting service provider.
Your first step in setting up DNS for your domain is create some A records, or host records, that point to servers that you are hosting resources (like a website). So, for example, let's say you are hosting a website on a server with IP 220.127.116.11. You'll create an A record for 'www' (without the quotes) to point to 18.104.22.168. This way, when someone goes to www.buy2sale.co.in, they'll be sent to your web server.
Does your DNS server have your server fqdn in its tables, and does your PC have the address of your DNS server in its lookup table?
One test you can do is to use the hosts file to put the fqdn into and assign it an address this would let you know the the PCs can use host tables to do the translation then this becomes a DNS issue as opposed to a lookup issue and you cut your troubleshooting in half.
In other words edit your hosts tables (hosts file) with the entry (Example 1):
IPADDRESS FQDN ALIAS
192.168.10.2 somesystem.myhome.com. system 192.168.10.5 somesystem2.myhome.com. system2
This as stated will determine if you have a DNS issue or a lookup issue, because the DNS system will use host tables first and the do a DNS lookup.
Once this is done if it works then try this setup:
1) in your router set the DNS to capture the DNS of your ISP (normally the setting will tell the router to use the DNS given to it by the DHCP protocol.
2) turn on DHCP on the LAN side of the connection in the router and set the controls for proxy DNS service (using the router as the local DNS server also called caching DNS server), However set the router up to allow static IPAddreses and if possible to recognize the domain name of the local LAN.
3) set your servers up with static IP addresses and in their host tables set the fqdn up as stated above in Example 1
4) in your PC set the DNS to be the IP Address of your LAN side of your router i.e. 192.168.1.1 and if needed set the host tables of all PCs to the server addresses, fqdn, and aliases this way if DNS fails the system will at least have the host tables to use.
Verizon blocks port 80 traffic to residential customers. If you want to host a website, they expect you to pay for the business service and a static IP.
I am monkeying around with my DNS records on goDaddy to see if I can get http traffic to go to port 8080 instead of port 80. So far, I have not had any success.
I did find no-ip.com, which, for $25/year, will "host" a simple redirect for you, so that when people type in http://yourdomain.com, it actually gets redirected to http://yourdomain.com:8080. That :8080 does show up in the address bar, but I think that's okay. Especially for $25/year.
