SBS 2011 DNS issue to external website

EE,

New install of SBS 2011, all working fine.

Have remote.company.com setup and working for email and remote access.

We host the actual website www.company.com elsewhere, but I can’t get access to it from inside the SBS environment, presume its internal DNS issue, but I don’t want to delete amend anything I’m unsure of.

Thanks.
Joe

If your internal domain is the same as external domain name, then
create an A record in your internal DNS 'www' pointing to your website server.
A record will looks like this after creation

www      Host(A)            91.140.230.236 (ip of web server)
