Web graphics not being displayed on Domain Web Site.

I have recently installed a Windows 2008 server domain. The internal domain is the same as the live domain. Everything is fine except when users INSIDE the domain connect to the live web site.

The domain is : domain.info
Live web site (hosted by third party web, not internal):   www.domain.info

Problem is that users can SEE the website, but there are no graphics coming thru nor is the text formatted properly. All other web sites are displayed properly, with graphics. The only site affected is the external domain web site (which shares the internal domain name). We do have an internal DNS www record that corresponds to the externally hosted static IP host. That data resolves...so the problem appears to be some security setting within the new server/IIS that prevents web graphics from JUST the www.domain.info site from displaying properly. It happens not only on the server, but also on client workstations.

This seems to be similar to the issue posted here:

Using the same FQDN for the internal and the external namespace is always a problem.

The most likely problem is that the website is trying to load the images from domain.info instead of www.domain.info. Using the View Source option in the browser should help you find the path from where the images are being loaded. If this is the case then changing the path for the images from domain.info to www.domain.info should resolve the issue.
