So the issue here is that you've used your real-world domain for your 
AD realm? I think most people make up an internal-only domain for this 
purpose, e.g. example.lan.

Is it too late to change that to something else? Otherwise I guess the 
answer is to add your website into your Samba internal DNS, which 
hopefully someone can advise on.
I would guess using samba-tool dns add command.
