Creating DNS record

Hi,
Our external facing web server was recently moved to an external hosting provider but when they set it up they set the address as Home - Dilworth School instead of Home - Dilworth School. There is a database backend to this and changing the name of the server would be a major undertaking. The problem is that any emails that are generated from within this website have links pointing to Home - Dilworth School. The company that manages our external DNS records have put in an appropriate record so people outside get sent to the right place but I cannot work out how to do this internally.
When I go to create a resource record in the DNS/DHCP management console it insists that I must fill in the owner name field so I am not sure how to get around this.

thanks

Keith

Have you tried creating a record with an '@' for the leaf portion (instead
of 'www')?

Good luck.

Thanks - that worked. Windows would not let me do it - tried to create a DNS key when I asked it to create a resource record. Running the DNS/DHCP management console directly on the server worked.
