Our 2003 Windows network has the same domain name as our website. We cannot reach our website from within our network.  If you are outside the LAN there is no problem reaching it.  It's just when you are inside.   We have no trouble reaching any other websites, just our own.

You need to make sure your dns record for your domain is correctl

the host record:  www   - needs to point to the external ip address of the website

That just takes me to http://www.insurancewebsitebuilder.com/  which is the web provider of our website.  It doesn't take me to our website?  I'm sorry, but I'm confused as to what you need that in there for?  They told me at insurancewebsitebuilder.com that there was no IP for our website.

How are you hosting your webpage then.  Is it on IIS or a different provider?

I basicallly did what you ( gzarnick) suggested above. I added the host record:  www   and pointed it  to the external ip  69.93.203.211.  It seems to be working now.  Thanks for the help!
