I have a website configured using Wordpress (www.wordpress.com
) as the provider and it is accessible just fine from outside the network. However, when users try to access it at the office from the internal network, they're unable to access the website.
For example, the domain name is ABC.COM and the website address is www.abc.com
. I don't have an A record created on the internal DNS zone because this simply won't work. Wordpress doesn't allow for this simple functionality as they do not have a single IP address for me to point to. They do not allow mapping of the "WWW" subdomain. See here http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-subdomain/
The reason this works externally is because I'm using Wordpress DNS servers (i.e. ns1.wordpress.com) for name resolution. I'm not sure that I can do the same inside the office, I'm afraid it will interfere with other internal name resolutions that are working just fine.
So the bottom line is that I need to figure out how to be able to query the Wordpress DNS servers just for the WWW record.
