Windows 2000 server and domain

one of my client has windows 2000 server with 6/7 computers on it. They also have exchange server running on the server. Now basically we are hosting our website outside with another hosting provider. I looked into DNS setting for our domain www(from register.com) is pointing to an IP address(which I got from hosting provider) and email is pointing to an IP address which
is provided by our ISP.
Now we have a problem, we recently change Hosting company and new company gave us an IP address so I went to register.com and change IP address there. After 2 days I can go to new IP address website from our domain. But when I try go the website from our company it goes to old site. Also from our company we are unable to the site without using www. I think there are some setting on windows 2000 server where its pointing to old IP address please help me on that. Also tell me step by step because I'm not an expert on windows server. I'm a programmer and not an network admin.

You are probably using a split DNS system. This allows you to use the same domain name internally and externally while allowing the clients on the local network to access the external web site.

You will need to adjust the entry in Windows 2000 DNS for "www" on that domain.
Open the DNS applet on the domain controller. It is part of the Adminsitrative tools. Expand the forward lookup zones until you see the domain name that you have having problems with. Look through the entries for any names that are pointing to the old external IP address. Adjust as required.

Yes - you will only need to look at the internal DNS settings. The external should have been managed as part of the move.

ok guys thats what I did:
1) Went to Control panel> Administrative
2) Click on "DNS"
3) Under Domain Name >>"Forward Lookup" I found 2 text files "www" and "domaincom" , I click on properties and change Ip address there.

Sorry none of the solution here was enough for me.
Thanks anyway

I think that pretty much covered it without actually sitting in front of the machine and seeing what entries you have.

If you don't agree then you will have to ask the mods. Post in the support forum (top right) and they will take a look.
You cannot leave the question, you will have to either request that it is closed or accept an answer.

if its still not working, try this

from a command prompt (run cmd) type the following with an enter after each

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
net stop netlogon
net start netlogon
exit (to get out)

then try the site lookup again.

I gave an answer that was as complete as I could make it without actually being in front of the machine.
