My friend wants to set up a new server based on Windows Server 2008.

He installed and configured all needed components like DNS, Mail Server, FTP, IIS, etc. Now he can access the server's root directory via its IP address; but he wants to have a global access to it via http its domain name, Its name server (NS) is

When we try to ping, the result is not good.

[saeed@localhost]~/robots% ping
ping: unknown host 

How can we solve this problem and make our NS global and valid for Domains provider or ISPs?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

According to these queries he probably hasn't setup the domain name at the authoritive name servers for that domain:

Default Server:

> set q=ns

Non-authoritative answer:     nameserver =     nameserver =     nameserver =     nameserver =     nameserver =        internet address =   internet address =        internet address = internet address = internet address =
> set q=a

*** can't find Non-existent domain

He'd probably need to manage his domain on
