External website just resolving to the server?

Exceptionally weird. I have a remote website that is just resolving to the server when I do an NSLOOKUP on it.
Also the LMHOSTS file on the server has no entries in it.
Any ideas?

Sorry, could you please clarify? What do you mean when you say it's just "resolving to the server"?

Completely understand. We are trying to see www.bigbrotherwatch.org.uk

if I NSLOOKUP it from the server it goes/resolves to the server.
If I another site with NSLOOKUP news.bbc.co.uk I get:

Server:  server.X.local
Address:  X.Y.Z.2

Name:    newswww.bbc.net.uk
Addresses:  212.58.244.119
        212.58.244.132
Aliases:  news.bbc.co.uk

I have noticed that someone put an entry into the DNS of the server years ago against bigbrotherwatch.org but if I pause it it makes no difference.

If you have an entry for the website within your internal DNS then it will resolve internally.  If the domain no longer needs pointing to your local server then I would just remove it.

An alternative to this would be to update the www. a-record on your server to the correct external IP.
