Change SharePoint Site URL

I have a SharePoint 2010 server up and running called "hotbox".  I can access the server by going to http://hotbox/Sites/[whatever].  (Assuming of course that the computer you are using is on our company domain first).  The hotbox server uses Windows Server 2008.  What I need to do is assign a public URL to this SharePoint site so that anyone can access it (assuming they have the permissions).  For example, I want the url to be "http://team.mycompany.net".  How can I do this in SharePoint 2010?  Do I have to use Alternate Access Mappings in the SharePoint Central Administration?  I have TFS also running on this server, so i'm worried about breaking the connection between TFS and Sharepoint.  I should also mention that I want to get an SSL certificate for this url.

Can't you leave the internal name as is and just add an A record for team.mycompany.net externally?

Once done, set up forwarding on your router for the necessary ports from outside.

to make things uniform, you can add an extra DNS namespace internally for mycompany.net and give the team. A record the internal IP of the sharepoint server.

This will not break any links you have because nothing changes, it just becomes accessible from outside.

It's all in the Alternate Access Mappings.  If you 'extend' the site with the AAM , it'll flow fine.  SSL certs mean another port on the firewall, and some tooling around in IIS, but this is generally easy.

Got it working. Open the SharePoint Central Administration Tool, click on Alternate Access Mappings. Make sure the "SharePoint 80" site is selected in the dropdown, and click Add Internal URL and enter "http://team.mycompany.net" for the URL, and select "Internet" as the zone.  Click Save.  Now if you want to use SSL, then repeat the same process but use "https://team.mycompany.net".
