  • help--typing url without www

    IE 6 or 7. I have a webpage that I have to type www in front page of the address in order to get there or it will said "Check availability or register the domain name" but it work with other website(microsoft,petril.co.il,etc). Is something I have to setup in IIS or browser? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    If you are the owner of this web site then you have to create a wildcard DNS entry pointing to the www host (often times signified by a '*' or '@' depending on the name server)

    if you are not the owner of this site you can a) contact them b) type the www

      I am the owner. Where do I go to create a wild card entry? Step by step instructions, please. Thansk.

        Being that I know nothing about your setup and my crystal ball is foggy it would be impossible for me guide me. A good start would be letting us know where you registered the domain and who handles your DNS.

          Do I create cn dns record in forward lookup zone?
          If so, what I put for alias, fqdn, fqdn for target?
          alias = www
          fqdn = www.example.com
          fqdn target = ?

            It only happen when I connect to the network at the office. Outside the network is okay. Please help if you had any ideas. Thanks.

              The website is it hosted on a server on the local network or somewhere outsite your network on the internet?
              Is the registred internet domainname you use for the website perhaps the same as your network domainname?

                yes, website is host on server on LAN & yes. Do you think that is the problem. How do I fix it? Thanks.

                  We need more info. Is the domain name identical to your AD domain name?

                  Do we have to guess everything?
                  Cheers,

                    Yes, it is exactly identical. Everything single letter and mark.

                        I think Rems solution make sense because our internet domain is the same as our network domain. If we are outside our network, it works fine.

                        Thanks a bunch, Rems.

                          You then need to add an 'A' record into DNS the points www to the IP address of the server.

                              Post screen shot of the DNS screen that shows that A Record. (Use JPG format). Theremaybe an error in the way you have constructed the record.
