Cannot access our website from inside our domain

We have a SBS2008 server runnning Exchange 2007.  Our website is hosted outside by another company.  For some reason, we can no longer access our website www.domain.com. from inside the network.  

If we attempt to browse to http://ourdomain.com we get back an HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden
The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directoryServer
Error in Application "SBS WEB APPLICATIONS"

If I ping our domain (ie. ping www.ourdomain.com) it resolves to our local server IP address which tells me that somehow the network thinks we are hosting our own server when that is not the case.  The website works from all other locations globally so this is affecting everyone on the local network only.

I think this happened when I ran the SBS console wizard "Set up your Internet Address".  I don't really understand what that section is for since we don't host anything other than own exchange server, but I did put ourdomain.com in the field which happens to be the same as our website address.  Could that have messed us up?

Again let me clarify that we are not hostingour won website.  It is hosted with godaddy and it is accesibble from all internet locations globally with exception to our domain.
