    Example:

    my websites domain is phzyxel.com and my local domain being use is phzyxel.com. Unfortunately, we can't access the wesites domain due to the local computers first sees the local domain. So the tendency the client will first reach the local domain and will not proceed to the websites domain. How to solve the issue?

    To my knowledge you can't fix this in your firewall. Your problem is your DNS server setup, and therefore you should have setup your DC domain as phzyxel.local.

    Have a look at this blog, and hopefully that will fix your issue.

    Hello phzyxel,
    I want to know after create the FQDN www.phzyxel.com, what is IP address of DNS server on Domain Zone forwarder.
    Please screenshot the DNS page to us for checking.
    Go to Configuration>System>DNS

    By the way, our local domain IP is 192.168.0.10.

    Thank you

    Once you got the DNS issue solved, if you want to access internal servers by their hostname/public IP remember to enable NAT-Loopback in your NAT/Port-forwarding rule.

    In my old company we used zyxel also but we are using proxy device too which enables us to access our website with the same domain on the local. How will it apply to the zyxel device without having a proxy server?

    Did you try enabling NAT-Loopback to your NAT-rule in the firewall that forwards traffic to the Mail/Web-server?
