    Hi there, just a quicky, my mind is blank.
    Put in a small business server (2003) and the doamin is a .co.uk.

    obviously they cant browse their website. due to it pointing to the server not the hosting company.

    I know i have to chneg something on the DNS on the server......

    can anyone point me in the right direction.

    thanks

    this is why people use things like corp.domain.co.uk, internal.domain.co.uk or domain.local etc as their AD domains - it avoids headaches like this.

    You need to add an A record for 'www' in the DNS server to point to the server's real (external) IP.
