The domain name in an active directory is say....natarang.org and on that domain i am unable to open a website which is named as www.natarang.org .

Do I require to change the domain name. Or it can be done without that. Plz suggest.

It is opening on one PC. I have tried ipconfig/flushdns and changing mtu settings, but did not work

Thanks & Regards

That's standard behaviour, as the DNS thinks that natarang.org is his network. That's probably one of the reasons why domainnames as in active directory do not have the same name as the public domainname. That's because the zone natarang.org is kept in your DNS server and for your DNS server there is no reason to query another DNS server since the zone is inside.

You can do a dirty workround by (for example) creating a new record in your DNS server, in zone natarang.org; create a new host record like www, set it to the public ip address of the webserver which is hosting the site, and you're good to go.

Create a new alias in DNS.
For example the servername is webserver:
Create a ALIAS (CNAME) record in DNS with the alias name www and the destination server webserver.natarang.org
