Added “(exampledomainname).com” to the host headers in IIS

The method to add it to the host headers was :
1 – go into IIS
2 – properties of (exampledomainname).com
3 – click on the web site tab
4 – click on the advanced button (for web site identification)
5 – put in port “80” and the domain name “(exampledomainname).com” without the www

Subject: the page does not come up when you type the following - http://(exampledomainname).com
...only when http://www.(exampledomainname).com

Sounds about right assuming you have "Default" as IP address.

Though it may not be the best way to do it. A 301 redirect may be better. The way to do that is create a new seperate website entry and then on the "Home Directory" tab

Select A redirection to A URL
http: //www.yoursite.info

And tick A permanent redirection for this resource

Have you set up your DNS server to allow this?
