How to properly configure DNS, SMTP and domain mapping to IP?
I need to know and configure a few things like DNS, SMTP server.
In fact my client has provided us with a dedicated server which is supposed to host the web application we developed for him. I can access it through Remote Desktop. It has a static IP. He has also bought a domain name for his site. Now we have to do a number of things i describe below:
- Need to configure DNS server on this machine so that the application i have currently uploaded on it, which runs using the ip will use the proper url so that it will be accessed globally with this domain url.
- Need to configure SMTP server on the same machine and create an email account which is also accessible globally so that mail sent to this user will be received on this account on this machine.
- Need to have SSL certificate. This is not an issue if i successfully accomplish above two tasks.
Would anybody elaborate the details of how to carry out these things and which authorities to call upon if needed (like for getting the domain mapped to our IP etc.).
