    Wink default host for a domain


    I've just started working with DNS. What I'd like to do is set up a default host for my domain so if someone just enters the domain name as a URL in their browser they will get directed to a host that I specify in DNS. For example, if someone enters a URL of "http://mydomain.net" in their browser, my DNS will give back the address of my webserver host which is "webserver.mydomain.net". I already set up a "www.mydomain.net" CNAME and that works fine.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    First u need to setup hostname for all the systems and then update ur DNS server with the corresponding hostnames and IP address.

    By making all the systems to point to the DNS server, u can acheive what u want...
