Configure Port ID in Msoft SBS 2003 DNS

I have a MSoft 2003 SBS. Currently unable to access the company website from inside the network. I have used the fully qualified IP address and file path to the access the externally hosted website and am able to view the site. However i am unable to access this website from inside the network / domain. I believe the problem to be with DNS, when doing an NSLOOKUP of the website address from the command prompt from the server, can't find: Non-existent domain. So in addition to any thoughts you may have on this problem, my question is can I assign a port ID for the website name in DNS to force a resolution to the website?

Thanks,

The NSLOOKUP error is a re-herring - its because you do not have a reverse lookup zone and can be ignored.
Does the external web server have the same name as your domain ? If so you need to add a DNS entry for it see http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_23719091.html
