Domain WWW. Not Working


#1

Hi,

I am cloaking a website with a domain registered here at dreamhost. For some reason, though, the domain only works without the WWW. Example:

http://name.com Works
http://www.name.com Doesn’t work.

Thank you for any help.

Check the domain configuration in the panel. This is a configurable option.

I don’t think that is a feature of www vs. no www. The choices are to add www, remove www, or allow both. It should always work without the www, but the panel allows you to control what happens when someone leaves off the www.

If it doesn’t clear itself up, drop a line to support. They may have to refresh the DNS table. While you’re at it, go to that masking domain’s DNS and see what’s listed. The non-www IP address (A Record) should be the same as the www. address.
