    Www. and non www. have a hard time settling down.


    I have finally completed.. (I think) the DNS set up of a new windows 2008 r2 server. I have set it to operate as a DNS server without the active directory installed at all.

    The actual domain name that is set as the server is resolving to its own site at the root inet/wwwroot/. seems ok..

    I have pointed 2 additional domains to the server.
    the new points from godaddy is adsentry.net and information-biz.com

    A weird resolution is going on as follows:

    all 3 domains have the a record for www. and non www. in place.

    When using the browser and navigating to:

    adsentry.net -> it resolves to the root.....wwwroot
    www.adsentry.net -> resolves correctly to its own site.

    information-biz.com -> resolves correctly to its own site.
    www.information-biz.com -> resolves to the root.. wwwroot

    Is this strange or what... it comes in different on each site..


    the nameserver is business-server-virginia.com and resolves to the root as it is pointed in both cases... in other words works just fine..

    business-server-virginia.com -> resolves to root as it should.
    www.business-server-virginia.com -> resolves to root = ok

    Currently I have one IP for both ns1 and ns2 as I do not have another IP but surely this cannot be the cause... can it..

    Thanks for any suggestions..

    The weekend coming, it may take a little longer to receive responses... so have a look at the Microsoft IIS site in the meantime. See if that may be able to help you any...

    Verify your IIS host header settings, and also re-check your dns settings.
