Hi!

"companyweb" alias is defined in DNS console in your domain's forward lookup zone and then used in IIS as host header to access SharePoint site. But I doubt that this information will help. Go to IIS manager, find companyweb, right click and the Browse. Does the site open or do you get an error?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Can you ping companyweb from SBS, can you ping it from client computer? Can you access http://sbsserver? Substitute sbsserver with actual server name?

Try: "nslookup companyweb", which IP is returned, it should be SBS's IP.

You are missing record for "companyweb in DNS. Go to DNS, and check your forward lookup zone can you see companyweb? If not add new alias (CNAME) record. Name: companyweb, IP = IP of your SBS server. Go back to client's command prompt, run "ipconfig /flushdns" and try again to access http://companyweb.

you may also whish to disable the default website running in iis, 2 web sites both running on port 80 may cause issues for you

yes you can but remember that your end users can remember a name easier than an IP address

You don't have choice. SBS is domain controller by default and it needs DNS to work properly. DNS on SBS is by default configured to enable access to companyweb.
You can have more than one site on port 80 on same IP, but you have to use hostheaders. Your IIS has propery configured hostheaders. Your problem is incorrectly configured DNS.

All clients in domain should use SBS as DNS. DNS on SBS should use forwders to correctly resolve host names on internet.
