Loopback configuration

I have a new router that is apparently making it impossible for me to view my personal sites from behind the router by domain name, a function that is necessary. I can see the sites by local 192.168.... ip address and port number and others have confirmed they are available on the www, so the server is running and named is resolving properly outside the LAN.

This is the hosts.conf, where I think my error might lie:

> ##
> # Host Database
> #
> # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
> # when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
> ##
>	localhost web2
>	broadcasthost
> ::1             localhost 
> fe80::1%lo0	localhost
>  mail.normanfournier.com mail web1-ext
>  web2.normanfournier.com www web2-ext
>     nf-telus-gw-int
>   norman-desktop
>   ns2
>  ns1

I *added* these lines to the bottom of hosts.conf

>   creativeprocess.biz
>   thecocoapod.com
>   rogueagent.ca
>   e4edmonton.com
>   brandasset.net
>   greaterthanhtml.com
>   kawacatoose.com

I rebooted and something killed my mailserver when I did this, and I still could now view the sites by domain name behind the router, so I reverted to the old file. Is here another place I should add the domain names, is there an error in my syntax (this has worked perfectly before) or it this the entirely wrong place to be looking to solve this problem?

Thank you.
