I am and have been trying to add a domain record to a domain within my Server 2008 DNS. So basically if I goto {domain}.{TLD} I get the domain instaid of errors.

The problem is that I have a router that does not support Hairpinning. So to fix this, I have to have two running DNS servers. the one outside my network at godaddy and the one internally so I can hit a server inside my network by FQDN.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure what the question is here, but yes, you'll need a DNS server for your internal network and a DNS server for your public network.  You don't indicate what sort of record you're trying to add, or what happens that prevents it.

One of the caveats of this approach is - as you note - domain.tld will resolve to the domain (not a web site) from within your network.

Thanks, John, but it's still not clear what problem you're running into.  Can you not add the A record?  If not, what stops you?  What error condition do you get?

OK.... Say the domain name i am trying the setup is ABCCO.COM, the issue I am having is creating or referring my internal DNS to just ABCCO.COM, I gte the following error:

The host record @.abcco.com cannot be created.
The name is invalid.

On Godaddy, I have to use the @ symbol to represent the domain itself. so I basically need to do the same here.

If your AD domain is called ABCCO.com, you should already have DNS entries for abcco.com that point to your Domain Controller(s).  

Nevertheless, in MS DNS you can right-click on the zone, select New Host (A)..., and create a record where the Name field is blank.  This will add the new IP address as a valid destination for the domain name.

Awesome... The blank hostname was what I was after :).
