Clients are able to access some SharePoint sites via IP address but are not finding it when using a 'name': http://sitename.com.  Where in DNS - assuming this is a DNS issue, do I begin troubleshooting this?

1.
 Open DNS.
 
2.
 In the console tree, right-click the applicable forward lookup zone and click New Host.
 
3.
 In the Name text box, type the DNS computer name for the new host.
 
4.
 In the IP address text box, type the IP address for the new host.
 
5.
 As an option, select the Create associated pointer (PTR) record check box to create an additional pointer record in a reverse zone for this host, based on the information you entered in Name and IP address.
 
6.
 Click Add Host to add the new host record to the zone.
