So I am trying to redirect one of my domains to a specific IP address.

So it works when typed into the address bar as

"www.webpage.com"
or
"http://webpage.com"

but doesn't work when typed just as
"webpage.com"

is this because I have to wait a for the name servers to stop "pending"? or is there a way I can work this out?

That looks like a browser-specific issue. With no protocol specified you have left the decision-making up to the browser to determine what you want here. Is this supposed to be a search? Did you leave off the protocol accidentally and should I assume that by default this was an attempt to get to a web site? And the next stop in the process is your Internet Service Provider (ISP) which can become an even more _wonderful_ experience :(

"doesn't work" is not a sufficient description of the response.

I see a lot of sites that only cater for www.site.com and not site.com... and vice versa. Of about 300 sites I looked up in the local phone directory about 50 were lame.

Dunno if this has anything to do with control panel automation of creating mail servers for each domain or not, but I would have thought that by now that idea was scrapped due to the trouble that it causes.

DNS management enables domain owners to manage their DNS records.Through DNS management domain owners can specify the servers which offer different kinds of services and transfer the services automatically from one server to another if the first server is malfunctioning.
