Hey Anthony,
I am hosting my DNS (IIS5) co-located. It is set up
using host headers.  I am making changes to the server
myself.  I have no problem going onto the server and
refreshing the DNS manually but I want it to happen in
my code each time somebody signs up for web hosting. 
I created the webservers in my code successfully. 
They work but I have to go onto the server and
manually reset the dns.   Yes, DNS is hosted on the
box that has IIS.  

I dont know what you mean by "pointing to".  The DNS
entrys are text files in C:\windows\sys32 etc.. .  But
the DNS works fine.  It just needs to be refreshed.

>the web server will not start working unless the DNS
