I know that it's possible to host multiple domains on the same server in IIS, and I know how to set up IIS to do that. What I don't know how to do is set up name servers to point the domain name to.

In other words I have one Windows 2003 server that is both my DNS server and Webserver. When I go to my registrar and it asks for name servers to point to, I'm accustomed to doing something like ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com

Would I need to add the ns1 and ns2 to my DNS Forward and Reverse Zones? Or do I just point to mydomain.com and let IIS take care of the translation?

Hi,

You will first need to create ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com under IIS 6.0.
Consider Your Server IP = XX.XX.XX.01
Then assign ns1.mydomain.com = XX.XX.XX.01 IP,
ns2.mydomain.com = XX.XX.XX.02 IP to point on the Server. Get both ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com registered with these IPs at your registrar end.

Now you are ready with your NS to assign to all the domains hosted on your server.
