Hello All!

We recently changed providers for our website and are going through the process of making it as simple as possible for end users to access our public website. We host websites internally but the main site we use for "publicity" is hosted externally. Our link balancer is currently installed in front of the firewall and we use public IP's to hit our firewall.

My main question here is whether or not it is possible to redirect port 80/443 traffic heading to JUST the domain name (example123.com) to our external website, while still being able to receive 80/443 traffic to our internal websites (www.example123.com).

If I didn't explain this very clearly, www.example123.com does not go to the same place as example123.com, the first FQDN goes to a website we host internally while the second FQDN goes to an externally hosted website. Is this possible using the link balancer?

Before we used IIS on our DNS server to redirect to these external pages. Any help would be appreciated!

If you have your own local DNS (Which it sounds like you do) then the easiest way to do this would be there.
