I'm quite new in this field so I need as much help as possible from the expert. This is regarding DNS and I have a question that I really need to know.

For an example: my company is using this domain : gold.gotdns.com as our Intranet page with ip address for an example
Our developer has created an error management program page using the same domain name but with specific port, eg: gold.gotdns.com:8087 and still point to the same ip address as well. It's like 1 ip address with multiple domain names with specific port number.

My question is: if I want to change the Error Management Program page with different domain name, maybe client.bugserror.com, how can I do that without giving any impact on the Intranet web page, which is the gold.gotdns.com

But I want options to this solution.

1-changing domain name but still point to the same ip address but maybe with specific port number
2-changing domain name and also use a new set of ip address

Like I said, I am very new in this field, so hope you can explain with details the step by step. Your prompt response is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

You should be able to accomplish that in two steps.

1) Add a cname in your dns that points from gold.gotdns.com to client.bugserror.com (this is usually set in your web host administrator or possibly in your domain registrar, depending upon how everything is set up).

2) You'll need to set up the web server to respond to the new domain address. Once again, the exact steps you need to take depends upon what sort of hosting you have. Ultimately, you need to go into the properties in IIS and add a virtual hostin the site bindings.
