I have a domain with domain.tdl domain name, so I need to make DNS point www.domain.tdl outside to externally ISP hosted www.domain.tdl website.

How to do it? - I've gotten a bit confused.

Just create an 'A' record under the local domain.tld zone pointing to the correct external IP of the web server.

Yeah! :)

A DNS restart was wrong, A record it is.

Can I also FWD "." that is naked domain.tdl to the same IP using A record?

If your AD Domain Name wasn't domain.tld you could... but your question suggests the names are the same.

AD needs "domain.tld" for itself, you can't use it for your website without a pretty considerable amount of work. Making everyone use "www.domain.tld" is way easier ;)

Hi,

Do not point "." to external - you AD will have issues - just create an "A" record for  www only to point to external.

test with nslookup from xp client domain.tld should return your AD and www.domain.tld should return external.
