One of my computers can only get my website up by using http://example.com rather than http://www.example.com. My other machine has no problem with both resolving fine.

I'm trying to find a setting on my machine that is causing the problem but I'm unable to locate it.

Did you recently change Name Servers?

I had the same problem yesterday on a windows 2003 server machine. I found that my A host record for example.com was wrong. However the machine I was on had already resolved it. Other machines could resolve example.com just fine.


didn't work for me either. I changed the host file on the machine that wasn't working. Short of trying a reboot.

My hosting provider recently moved my website to a new server which was when the problem started.

Where do I find the 'host' file?
