Not sure how to describe but our website for work is www.fosterThomas.com as of last week it was functioning properly, however right now it is only functioning inside our office.

If you are off the network and go to www.fosterthomas.com you get a forbidden 403 error.

Any ideas?  Did something accidently get changed with an A record or CName, would that change be internally on our server or externally at our DNS host?

fosterthomas.com resolves to 66.195.172.195

Is that your correct IP address?

Also, your domain registration shows a change made on Sept 29/14, but doesn't say what it was:

http://www.whois.net/whois/fosterthomas.com

Is this still the correct registration information? Any chance your domain expired and was scooped up by someone else?

Also have you tried the full path to the web page, say:

http://www.fosterthomas.com/index.html

assuming your main web page is named index.html

403 means you don't have permission to access it.  See if someone turned off "Anonymous Access".
