I have different IP addresses mapped to different web
sites on the same web server within an Intranet
environment. I have read that it is possible to map an IP
address to a fully qualified DNS name, to be used instead
of the IP address. I would be very grateful if someone
could specifiy how this is carried out. Unfortunately I am
new to DNS server administration.

You just put the various host names in your
DNS zone and associate them to the corresponding
For example: in the company.com zone, create
a host record for “site1” and associate it to 10.10.1.1,
another host record for “site2” and associate that to
10.10.1.2, and so forth.
When people use: “http://site2.company.com./ they
then get the 10.10.1.2 IP address, for example.
The other piece of this is that your web server has to
be configured to discriminate based on ip address.
If it is IIS, you open the properties for each site, and
instead of “(all unassigned)”, you enter the specific IP
you want that site to respond to.

Be grateful to Microsoft then, for putting this in
the “How To” section of the product documentation.
