I have a SBS 2008 server as my DC and DNS server and there are a few sites that my users cant access. If i do a NSLOOKUP for the sites the results come back with correct IP address. If i put the ip address of the site in the browers the name of the site appears on title of the top of the browers, but still gives me a 404 error. I have created forwards in my DNS and still doesnt work. My ISP says they arent blocking the sites. How can i add the FQDN and IP address in to the DNS as a AAA Record?

Nslookup is working, so this isn't a DNS issue. You have other problems. Adding an A record won't help you, given the symptoms you describe.

Hi,
1. need to check website can access within the server.
2. need to check website can access with local IP address in intranet (withing organization)
3. If website can access with local IP than we think for DNS record if website will not access with local IP address need to verify web server setting, need to binding web site with local IP.
4. If website work withing local network - go to  DNS add A record and check will A will resolve or not

Are you able to access the site from outside your network?
Have you viewed the logs on your firewall?

if you use the ip address it may be a shared server that is using  hostnames to differentiate the different websites that share the same ip address.
