Server 2008 DNS Issues

I think I made a huge mistake. I have a Server 2008 domain in our Office. I named it XYZ.COM. We actually own that domain also on Go-Daddy. Go-Daddy hosts our website and email. I named our Internal domain XYZ.COM to make SSL certs easier since we can not get .LOCAL certs anymore. But now that I named our Internal Domain the same as the External Domain from the Internal Domain we can not see our website anymore "www.XYZ.COM"   Is there anytype of DNS fix I can do for this? Or did I royaly screw up?

Well you have the rename instructions I gave you.

My network
www.mydomain.com

FQDN our.network.mydomain.com

I always place something at the start of the domain name to make it slightly different so there is no confusion

What result do you get when you perform NSLookup on xyz.com and www.xyz.com from client computers?

just looked at my setup, create a host record (a) in dns forward zone. name=www---fqdn=your website---ip address-the webserver ip

when this is done a user on your intranet types www.xyz.com the traffic is directed to the webserver

Great read on those articles. I went with just the DNS multi split. Works fine now. Thanks.
