Next, you need to let DNS know what the new domain alias is by creating a new Forward Lookup
zone if one doesn’t already exist. Then you need to create records there to point at the SharePoint
server. Assuming you don’t have them yet, follow these steps:
On the server hosting DNS (usually the first domain controller on the network), open the DNS
Management console by choosing Start Administrative Tools DNS.
Right-click the Forward Lookup Zones node in the navigation pane, and select New Zone.
In the New Zone Wizard Welcome screen, click Next. Choose Primary Zone for the zone type,
and click Next.
On the next screen in the wizard, you can choose how the new zone information will replicate
to other servers in the domain. My example uses the default. Click Next.
In the Zone Name field, enter your domain alias. My example uses dem0tek.com. Click Next.
