DNS resolution for a www site in 2008R2 AD

I have a customer (small business) that has a fairly small 2008R2 domain.  Let’s say acmeinc.com    They are having trouble resolving their www site internally (hosted externally) & normally I just put a host entry for www in the forward lookup zone for acmeinc.com.    Problem is that their WWW host (wix.com) is often changing IP addresses for the www webserver.  Short of updating the host entry, is there any way to force the www site to be resolved externally?

Thought of trying Conditional Forwarder, but that appears to be the full domain & not a specific host

Cheers!

if it changes IP addresses for the www webserver how does their external dns continue to point to the correct server? if its a hostname you can create a cname for www to point to whatever host their external dns is pointing to
