Can't see internally hosted website when inside the network

Hello there.

I am creating podcasts that I like to download to my android phone. I host the podcasts on my home webserver and use dyndns for the website when outside the network. However, when I type in my dyndns website from inside my network, it will not work.

I realize i can use the ip address to get to the site, but since I use beyondpod for my podcasts, it's all saved in settings. So what i'd like to be able to do is download the podcasts to my phone from either inside or outside the network.

How can I do this?

Being a network kinda guy the first thing that comes to my mind is load up a linux machine and install dnsmasq, and have it do DNS services for the internal network only, and resolve the dynamic address to the server with the podcasts. As a bonus, you can have it provide dns services for any and all fixed IP nodes in your network, and cache all external DNS requests to speed up all of your internet activity.

Even to me that sounds like a lot for a newby to take on. Anyone have a more 'simple to implement' answer?
