You could also make an "A" record that points "www" to the IP address =
directly, instead of making a CNAME record for "www," as Josh suggested. =
I'm not sure if one method is better than the other. =20

In DNS, for the "" zone, create an "A" record (excluding a
hostname) and set it for whatever IP you need it assigned to. Then, in =
same zone, create a "CNAME" record that points the "www" hostname to
"". That's it. Nothing needs to be done in your =
zone (someone mentioned something about it earlier).

It doesn't matter how you have IIS set up (as far as a name/description
goes)--IIS "webs" are based on IP address by default anyway.
