Default Wget & cron jobs

Hello and good evening.

I am running ISPConfig

I hope domain.tld and am trying to run a cronjob using wget but its not working.

The command looks like this:
* * * * * /usr/bin/wget -O - http://domain.tld/subfolder/name_of_file

The wget response I get is:

--2013-02-16 17:16:00-- http://domain.tld/subfolder/name_of_file
Resolving domain.tld... XXX.XXX.XXX.XX (PUBLIC IP ADDRESS via DDNS)

Connecting to domain.tld|XXX.XXX.XXX.XX|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2013-02-16 17:16:00 ERROR 404: Not Found.

But if I add the FQDN to the /etc/hosts file, the command and cron works BUT the domain is not correctly resolvable from the Internet.

What is the best way to get wget to work? I can also use curl but curl does not seem to work either. I am assuming for the same reason.

And yes, I can access http://domain.tld/subfolder/name_of_file in my web browser while on the LAN.

Can someone please help?
