The DHCP protocol does not automatically update DNS in the event that the DHCP server changes the IP address of a client.
To facilitate this interaction, servers running Windows Server® 2008 and DHCP and clients running DHCP can register with DNS, allowing cooperation between the two.
When a qualified DNS client (such as a computer running Windows XP Professional or Windows Vista®) issues an update, DHCP servers running Windows Server 2008 process the update to determine in which of three ways the server will initiate updates on behalf of the client: The ability to register both A and PTR resource records enables a DHCP server to act as a proxy for clients running other operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition, or Windows 98, for the purpose of DNS dynamic update registration.
The workstation platform determines how the client interacts with the DHCP and DNS servers.
Most domains are hosted with Go Daddy, Network Solutions, Yahoo/Melbourne IT, Tucows/Open SRS, 1&1, Bluehost, etc., or a reseller of one of the previously listed providers.They associate the TCP/IP address assigned by DHCP to a client with its fully qualified domain name (FQDN).This association, or mapping, of an IP address to a domain name requires that a change in either the address or the name necessitates an update of the information in DNS.If you select the DNS tab, you'll see a dialog box similar to the one shown in Figure 3.9.When you buy a domain through Shopify DNS Manager, your domain is actually been registered with Open SRS and your DNS records are managed by Open SRS.With the advent of Windows 2000, many administrators were elated to hear that it contained a new feature called Dynamic DNS (DDNS).
