Domain not working without WWW prefix

Discussion in 'Reviews' started by JohnS0N, Sep 17, 2007.

    Look at the following:

    http://www.bustathief.com - WORKS
    http://bustathief.com - NOT WORKING!

    I use blogger and I registered the domain through godaddy.com

    Please advise as soon as possible!

    Mods: I couldn't find a more suitable category for my issue.

    you might want to check your dns settings to see if the A record for bustathief.com is the same as the www.bustathief.com

    Can you explain more detailed what you mean with "A record" ?

    Thanks.

    I see a go-daddy domain parking page on the domain without the www's

    Since you're with go-daddy you should contact their support if no one can help you here.. (call them if it's urgent).

    Yeah, I contacted them and they said I need to contact blogger... a stupid reply. Why would I be contacting them. It's been two weeks since this is not working.

    i don't understand why they would think that its bloggers issue they control the domain therefore its the problem of the domain holder.

    did you use the dns change or just forward the domain and mask it?

    I used the dns change. I'm working it out with a godaddy representative now. I hope everything works out for the best!

    I got this reply. If I set this up could I experience larger loading times or any problems with seo?

    1 thing you could do is instead of using the DNS setting you can do a forward to the blogger domain they give you with a 301 Moved Permanently setting

    Ping the website you are wanting to forward to, in order to get the IP address if you don't know it.
    "Run"; CMD; "ping yourwebsite.com"
    Will display ping data and reply from IP address. Note this address.
    Login to Godaddy.com to manage your account or other domain registry site
    Go to DNS Control
    Modify/Add "A Host"
    Under "Host" enter: @
    Under "Points To" Enter the IP Address you obtained earlier.
    You are done! Site is forwarded without the www prefix when entered into address bar.
