URL Redirect to IIS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a link on our website hosted offsite and it currently points to an IP, the IP of our IIS server in our office.  A client is wanting the redirect to have a domain name instead of an IP.  How do I go about doing this?  I know it has something to do with DNS, but Im not sure how to go about it.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Scottdog129,

    Based on your description, you are trying to associate a Domain Name System (DNS) name with an IP address, right?

    Are you trying to associate a domain name on Intranet or Internet?

    To associate a Domain Name System (DNS) name with an IP address, we can use this procedure to add a new host (A or AAAA) resource record to a zone on DNS server to implement it.

    Add a host (A or AAAA) resource record to a zone using the Windows interface or using a command line.

    Here is a link about add a host (A or AAAA) resource record to a zone, please check it for detailed steps.

    If you want to associate a domain with an IP address on the Internet. We need buy a domain name before we register it. Kindly notice that.

    Best regards

  • Here is the example.  If you go to http://www.pulizrecords.com/vegaslogin.html and click on "ONLINE ACCESS", when it gets you to the login screen, the URL is an IP address.  I want to make it to where its an actual URL, like login.puliz.com.  How do I do that?

  • Hi Scottdog129,

    Have you tried my suggestion to associate this Domain Name with an IP address to have a test?

    Please follow the link to associate login.puliz.com with the IP address to have a test.

    In addition, your question seems to be related to IIS, it is more complicated.

    We are not familiar with this, maybe you can contact our IIS forum for help.

    They may have more suggestion for you.
