Assuming you want your website to be called www.xx.yyy.com, you'll want to create a host record named www on the public DNS server within the xx.yyy.com zone and point it to the external interface of your router.  If port forwarding is configured correctly, it'll forward traffic from there to your local server.

That should be sufficient to enable access internally and externally using the public FQDN.  If you want internal users to access the site using a different name, you'll need to make sure that your internal DNS server has a corresponding host record for it.

You'll also need to configure host headers in IIS for whatever names you use for the site.

I'm not one to make a big deal out of this sort of thing, but the solution appears to be what I recommended in comment #35448697.
