I have a website, if I type my website address in IE as http://yyy.com, when the page loads the address remains in that format. What I want to have happened is to force the url to be in http://www.yyy.com. Any ideas how?

Same Problem ~ Help Needed
I'm having the exact same issue. I need to have the URL resolve to http://www.[website name].com irregardless of the format actually entered by the user.
For instance if the user navigates to:
they still arrive at http://www.[website name].com.
Google is a good example of this. I thought about using a server side redirect on the default page, however I want my site to be available for spidering by search engines etc.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!!!

One possibility is some kind of url cloaking through a service like zoneedit.com, I guess.
There may be some IIS equivalent of Apache's url_rewrite but I don't know what it is.
