Web address without typing www

By smiller ·
My company has a internet address, but it will not work unless you type the www. in front of the address.

For instance, if you type www.abc.com, you get the page fine. If you type abc.com, it doesn't come up.

How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Answer - CNAME record

by Pv]Utrix[ In reply to Web address without typin ...

Hello, I don't know if you got this answer or not yet but here goes anyway...
if you want your web page to come up whatever you put in your web browser www.abc.com
gfsdfsdf.abc.com, asdasd.asdasdas.asdasd.abc.com
or just abc.com

you need to create 2 records on your DNS server
1. Cname *.abc.com abc.com
2. a abc.com 111.111.111.111 <--- web server's IP

now all the traffic will be routed to abc.com

If you don't know how to administer your own dns server go to everydns.net and use their services.
You can point your domain to their name servers and modify DNS records through a very user-friendly interface. And best of all it's FREE!!!
