DNS issue, local domain vs. website

Hello.  I have a local win2003 server running as domain "jasonsnetwork.com"  If you ping jasonsnetwork.com, you get the local ip.  However, the webhosting is elsewhere (not on the local network), so if you ping jasonsnetwork.com from elsewhere, you get the web ip back, and thus, the website is available offsite, but we can't visit the site internally.  Any simple way of fixing this besides renaming the local domain, thus f-ing up the email?

Add a dns entry in your dns server for www.jasonsnetwork.com pointing to the proper ipaddress of your webserver

Or setup your DNS server to forward unknown requests to an external DNS server, i.e. those of your ISP.

the problem with that is his dns server and clients believe that his dns server is the only server hosting the dns records for this domain. It will not forward, for a domain it holds the dns records for.

In addition to what jcoppin said to do, what I did on my network was to install IIS on the domain controller and modify the default site to redirect to www.mydomain.com.  That way if you try to access the site as mydomain.com (without the www) then it will redirect you to the "www" A record that jcoppin said to create in your AD DNS which points to the actual IP address of your web server.

I haven't had a chance to go up and impliment that, but I was wondering if the setup of that forward is pretty easy?

Even easier -  bring up the properties for the virtual server in IIS (called Default Web Site), go to the Home Directory tab and select "A redirection to a URL" and type in the url in the form of http://www.mydomain.com.  Voila!
