DNS and Website

I have recently changed my website to a cloud hosting provider. Have changed my external DNS records to point to the new IP and everything seems fine except these to issues.

1. When on a browser I type www.teamsix.com it's supposed to redirect me to www.team6.com  I  have a CNAME on DNS that says www.teamsix.com CNAME www.team6.com

2. Inside my network, when I type www.teamsix.com, www.team6.com and teamsix.com (notice no www) it works, but if i type team6.com (no www) nothing works.

My internal domain name is team6.com so I am guessing that's the reason because if i do nslookup i get my internal domain controllers IPs.

Is there a way to make this work?

Review the file for any of your team6.com and teamsix.com IP entries and verify that they are correct. I must assume that the are not correct or simply not there.
In any case enter the proper IP pointers for each domain.
You have not listed your IP's so I leave this small detail to you ;-)
