Domain name (*.com) issue

Specs: Windows Server 2008 R2, Xeon 3.22 GHz
Greetings,

I have setup a Win Server 2008 R2 with domain controller and dns server all together. Since i own this hoya.com (example), i put the domain name as hoya.com.

I'm having this problem with connecting to my website (hoya.com) and email address (xsplax@hoya.com) after creating this DC and joining a computer to this domain. I tried to access hoya.com via the server also give the same result. In other word, everything with hoya.com is not accessible via these server and that PC.

Please be advised that the email and the website were hosted with the third party provider.

I tried nslookup at the server and it gave out this output:
Default Server: localhost
Address: 127.0.0.1

while at the joined pc it gave out:
***Can't find server name for address 192.168.0.2: Non-existent domain
***Default servers are not available
Default Server: UnKnown
Address: 192.168.0.2

While other 2 computers which connected directly to the router (without joining the DC) can access the email and the website without any issue.

I heard that it has something to do with dns forwarding configuration. If it is true, i'm not quite sure what i really need to do.

I have this diagram to help you to understand my situation but it seems that the attachment function not provided here.

Anyhow, i would be happy to provide you more details to help you resolve my critical issue.
Thank you.

Ask yourself how DNS is going to differenciate between the external url and the internal url when they are both the same?

This article covers what you need to know and decide which way you are going to proceed.

Eh?

The article suggested two routes to take.
internal subdomain
different external and internal domain names.

Which did you choose? Did you see the link to that choices how to article?

Yes, i did check and since i already registered the *.com so it seems that i need to go for creating internal subdomain like hq.*.com correct?

and now my problem is how exactly to perform this operation?

did you not see the link in the article to "using an internal subdomain"?

You would need to make a child domain hq.*.com
