In this example, we’re creating a website to provide a way to check the validity of a domain name (DNS) record.
We’re also checking to see if the DNS records match a specific address or not.
If we don’t, we’ll get an error message.
If the domain is in the domain we want, we can select it from the dropdown and we can add a DNS record that’s registered to that domain.
Let’s start by adding a DNS entry to our site.
In this case, we’ve added a name, dns, record.
To do this, right-click on your website and choose Properties.
In the Properties window, under DNS, select the Domain name.
In DNS, add the domain, e.g., google.com.
We can now select the record.
Next, we need to choose whether to create a new record for this domain or not, by clicking OK.
We don’t need to specify any values for the new record, so just click OK.
To verify that the record is valid, we click OK again.
This will open the DNS server and verify that a record matches the address.
If there are no errors, we should see a checkmark.
If you’re using a Windows 7 computer, the Windows DNS server might prompt you to restart.
If not, the server might restart again.
Click OK to close the Properties dialog.
Next we need a DNS address for our domain, so we can connect to the domain name server.
Right-click the domain and choose New.
Type the domain’s IP address in the Name box, and click OK to create the record for the domain.
To check that the domain has an IP address, we could click OK and browse to the IP address for the IP.
The IP address should look like this: 192.168.0.1 .
We can verify this by typing 192.0.* into the Name field.
To remove the domain from the list, we would type 192.
We want to make sure the record was created correctly, so click OK, then OK again, and then click OK in the DNS box.
If everything works out, click OK then click Save Changes.
In Windows 10, you can open the Settings app and select About phone and then Phone.
Under DNS, choose Settings.
Click the Add button to add a new DNS record.
If all goes well, the domain should appear in the list.
Next up, we add a domain to our list.
To add a name to the list we need two things.
We need to select the domain in the Domain Name dropdown.
And we need the IP Addresses field.
Click Save Changes and OK to save changes.
When the new domain is added to the site, it should show up in the Google DNS server.
To view the domain history, click the domain link in the right-hand navigation bar, and in the History section, select View Domain History.
If things go well, we shouldn’t see any errors.
