  • Question

  • Lets say i have domain name : mydomain.com

    And i have server ip 11.22.3.41 with folder browsing enabled.

    And a dns server on my pc .

    And now THE QUESTION,will it work assuming my domain hosting company dosent have path forwarding enabled OR does my domain name hosting company MUST have path forwarding enabled for the domain to transfer the full path to the SERVER?

    >>When i click mydomain.com/folder1 will i get 11.22.3.41/folder1?

    No. when you access the 11.22.3.41/folder1 it will be converted to http://11.22.3.41/folder1. Then it need IIS to handle the request. If you didn't install IIS, it should return 404.

    I'm confused about what do you want to achieve. If you have a domain provider with public domain. It should binding your domain with your public IP. Then you need to install IIS and add the binding host header with domain name and IP.

    Then when you access the website, the request could be routed. I think it should have nothing to do with your own DNS.
