cant connect to our website when we dont type in www
Any ideas guys?
plus I want to setup Wordpress multi-site, and apprentlly if you use ie http://www.theockendonacadem.com/ when setting it up, all you other blogs would have http//subdomain.www.theockendonacademy.com, so I need to setup using this link http://theockendonacademy.com but I get errors.......
The requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL:http://theockendonacademy.com/
The following error was encountered:
- Connection to 22.214.171.124 Failed

Would this be the councils end?
Something related to our server iis/dns setup?
Something related to our domain name provider setup? (123reg)
havent included the subdomain and mail records, im gussing they have nothing to do with this problem
@ - 126.96.36.199 (A Record)- Note this is not our exchange IP Address! (we have a CNAME record for our exchange under the MX Records part)
* - 188.8.131.52 (A Record)
www - www.ockendon.thurrock.e2bn.org. (CNAME Record)
Our internal DNS Config
zone = theockendonacademy.com
www - 10.146.67.150
* - 10.146.67.150
same as parent folder - 10.146.67.150

Not working here.
IIRC you need to set a record in your DNS to get the URL without WWW to go to the right place. (CNAME?)

Works fine here too with and without all the w's.

A lot depends on the browser, some auto fix them, some don't.
As mentioned you'll need to add an A record for both parts (with and without), also if you're using virtual hosts you'll need to list the alias's.
Apache example (http.conf)

Thanks for that guys
TBH after thinking a while, I can't remember if I ever typed the address without the www externally.
I thought of doing a test (turn off proxy on my computer, proxy is from the council)
It seems to work without the proxy
So somehow the proxy is blocking this
The expections we have currentlly set is this
What do I need to change?
at a gusse change it to
or would that not work, im thinking that as http://theockendon..... doesnt have a dot, the proxy still goes to this address
Also is it best to put a star at the end of the proxy expection? So it would be
