    If I have a DNS server eg. ns1.mydomain.com. How do I create a redirector
    that when people type in www.mynet.com it would take them to their free
    website on their isp eg.. host.myspace.com . Just like the ISP
    web/email forwarder and redirector...

  2. In
    Redirection is not a DNS function.

    You can do that in IIS. When a request comes in for www.mynet.com, instead
    of going to a local folder for the files, you select an http redirect and
    you type in wherever you want to send them.

    You can probably also make an alias in DNS, such as one called www under
    mynet.com, and the record wold be wherever you want to send them. This is
    not usually recommended. Test it out first
