We recently installed a Windows 2012 server and have a question.
1. We made the server domain as companyname.com which is the same as the external website companyname.com. The issue is that when they attempt to go to the website it obviously only resolves to the internal domain name as the dns on the server is what is being pointed to. If there any way by making changes to repoint (perhaps with a cname on the server) which will force it to point to the external website. They do not have a dedicated ip for the website but it appears to be a shared ip as if we type in the ip address assigned, it pulls up a page showing windows IIS running and does not show the webpage, but if we type in the actual name the website comes up.
If the steps can be provided to accomplish this it would be appreciated if it is possible, at present we have to have the ISP dns server listed first in dns servers and then the internal domain listed second in order for the external website to resolve properly.
