Web connection attempts re-directing to 8.15.7.117 and 63.251.179.13

When attempting to connect to Web sites hosted at our site the connections fail and doing nslookups returns the IPs 8.15.7.117 and 63.251.179.13.  These are Verizon hosts and obviously not the correct addresses.  My addresses are entered correctly in DNS and the Web sites are accessible locally.  However, from outside our network this re-direct is happening.  Any insights into this?  The problem occured after an attempt to cut-over to another ISP.  That cut-over had to be scrapped when a partner of ours wasn't ready with their changes.  All DNS entries and firewall configs were set back to their original status, but this problem still cropped up.  Anyone experience something similar?

Please check if your dns server addresses are correct on registrar records.

The registrar is Go Daddy.  Thought initially this was a DNS issue, but the Verizon IPs I had returned were just because I was using Verizon's service and they give you their DNS hosts when they can't properly resolve a name.  To resolve the problem we used another available IP for our Web site and associated that new address with our firewall's NAT policies.  That worked.  Not sure why the old address wouldn't work for the re-direct but there you have it....

Thanks for the feedback!

why not just set the A record to the verizon IP number and set up a DMZ on  your outer to the machine with the website?

Solution ultimately required knowledge of local firewall NAT policies.
