DNS problem - resolving address for website
Have a DNS problem that I can't get my brain around.
All internet working ok except connection to our own website www.wvacademy.org - hosted externally by embc.
Get Unable to determine IP address from host name for www.wvacademy.org when I try to browse to site.
nslookup gets "can't find www.wvacademy.org Non-existent domain" - from our internal dns server/domain controller
I am guessing it is because our domain is called wvacademy.org and so it is not trying to resolve the name through the forwarders.
Not sure what I can change in DNS to get it to resolve?
Website is working ok and can access externally.

If you internal AD domain is called the same just manually create an A record for WWW on your AD DNS Servers with the correct IP in.

That seems to work - not sure why I need to do that or if there is another way in case DNS address changes but thanks at least it gets it working.

if you use split DNS (same DNS name internally and externally) you will need to create the www record in your internal dns. This is because the internal server will be authoratitive for the dns zone so if the record is not in internal dns it will not query external dns. it will just fail.

If it still don't fix the issue , log on to your router and disable its firewall, it should fix the issue.
