Skip the “www”

I wasn’t familiar with how to get a website to repsond without the “www” in front, and when I went to do searches on it, I wasn’t too happy with the results.  So, I am creating this entry just to remind me how to do this simple little task.

To get a website to respond to the “” and the “”, using Windows 2003 Server for DNS and for IIS, the following are the steps to take:

1.  add a host header for “” and “” in IIS.

2.  add an “A” record for “” and “” in DNS.  (Note:  You can use an Alias(CNAME) for the “www” entry instead of a Host(A) record, but you have to enter an A record for “”.)
