I think I found the problem but I am not sure yet.
Since I am using forwarders in my server to point my domains to the
proper ip address, so far I was using Host (A) which was pointing to the
actual public ip address. Now I just realized that it shouldn't point
back to the public ip address since this server is where the web pages
are loading from so I think it is supposed to have Alias (CNAME) as a
forwarder! When I changed Host (A) to Alias (CNAME) I was able to pull
up my webpages internally and externally.

The only problem I currently have is I can't access to the domain names
that I am hosting with my server from LAN. On the other hand these
domain names are fully accessible from outside (WAN). My server is
located inside of my LAN is a DHCP as well as web-server. (ADSL ->
Firewall -> Server -> Stations)
I looked at the FAQ 13.3 but couldn't fix my issue. Maybe I did
something wrong even after reading this FAQ!
I would really appreciate if someone can help me out to get this problem
