DNS/Domain pointing help


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the correct forum for this question. 

 

Using Win Server 2008 R2 with all updates. I have a website with the following entries set with the registrar company where the domain was purchased from

 

DNS ENTRY TYPE DESTINATION/TARGET

*                      A         1.2.3.4      

@                    A         86.15.122.7    

 

IP 1.2.3.4 is the default IP of the registrar.

IP 86.15.122.7 is my server address

 

When i type in mysite.com this displays my site - great no problem here.

When i type in www.mysite.com this displays the registrar's page.

When i ping mysite.com this shows my IP (86.15.122.7).

When i ping www.mysite.com this shows the hosting companies IP (1.2.3.4).

 

In IIS against the sites binding i have two entries

 

mysite.com

www.mysite.com

 

I then set canonical with the primary address being mysite.com.

 

The problem i have is when entering www.mysite.com i want it to go to my site and not the registrars site. So should i be changing the * record (currently set to 1.2.3.4) to achieve this? Please note there are MX records so i dont want to make a change which may disrupt another service.

 

Thanks
