    A few ways if you want the whole network to see this:-

    Create dns zone for and create A records pointing to your internal IPs... means you would have to create A records for all other records you want them to see outside of your network.

    Create host file entries for the machines that require this. Doesn't affect other records on same domain but requires a lot of walking around PCs!

    i'm assuming you want this to work just within your internal network

    simply create a new forward lookup zone for in DNS management

    Do both IP addresses on the same NIC, I can provide Screen Shots if necessary.  You'll need to Have your DNS server pointed toward the ISP DNS server(s). Have DHCP list your internal DNS first and ISP DNS server(s) second. This way you can get around on the internal network and if the internal DNS goes down, internet (and your .com) will still work.

    Also, depends why you are doing it but if you own the domain and wish for it not to be seen while you are working on it (for example), you could change the external record to an internal IP.
