How To Create A DNS Forward Lookup Zone?

A forward lookup zone is a DNS zone in which hostname to IP address relations are stored. When a computer asks the IP address of a specific hostname, the forward lookup zone is checked and the desired result is returned.

In order to create a new forward lookup zone:

You have to start the DNS snap-in. For the same, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DNS.

Select DNS Server object for your server in the left pane of the console, and then expand the server object to expand the tree.

Then, Right-click Forward Lookup Zones and then, click New Zone. The New Zone Wizard will start. Click Next to continue.

New Zone Wizard appears, click Next to continue.

Select "Primary Zone" to create a copy of your zone and click Next to continue.

Tip: You can select the check box at the bottom of the New Zone Wizard on a Domain Controller (DC) to store the zone information in Active Directory (AD).

From the "Active Directory Zone Replication Scope" dialog box select one of the radial button options or accept the default of "To all domain controllers in the Active Directory domain Name.Com and click Next.

From the "Forward or Reverse Lookup Zone" dialog box select Forward lookup zone and click Next.

In the Zone Name box, type the name of the zone (for example, type newzone.com), and then click Next.

(NOTE: This name is typically the same as the DNS suffix of the host computers for which you want to create the zone.)

From the "Dynamic Update" dialog box select one of the radial button options or accept the default of "Allow only secure dynamic updates (recommended for Active Directory)" and click Next to complete the task.

Click Finish.
