DNS Question

I am having a DNS issue, our public website is hosted outside of our network. Our ISP routes outside HTTP requests to our webhost. We can't hit our website www.formatech.com from inside our network. And I am gathering that I need to put a DNS entry in pointing to the right IP address, being that our Microsoft domain is called formatech.com.  How/what do I have to enter into our DNS server to make this work?

Thank you!

Just put a DNS host A record into your DNS with the name www (FQDN www.formatech.com) and set the IP address to be the external address that your ISP routes to.
