Intranet Website Addressing with WWW domain

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Hi EE-
I’m looking to setup an internal address like “inside.company.com” for our intranet website.  However, our internal domain is “corp.company.com”.  Our external domain is “company.com”.  We host our own external web server and I wanted to place the intrAnet site on the same server.  We’re running Windows Server 2008 Webserver Edition and Server 2008 for AD/DNS.

Is it possible to give my internal users the address “inside.company.com” as opposed to “inside.corp.company.com” without compromising security?  If so, how?

Please advise!
