Added new sub-domain which loads www in front unintentionally

I'm a website developer that adds sub domains to host the preview stages of my clients websites. So far it seems like DNS work is what I lack the most on. I've setup a sub-domain, and that one works fine. However I'm re-designing my own site using the sub-domain I'm pretty certain I have the A record setup fine. It's identical to the other sub-domain. However, whenever you go to that URL, it immediately throws a www in front of it ( and I can't deduce why that's happening.


Hi @Bensirpent07

I suggest taking a look at your 'www' CNAME and see where it is pointing to. If that doesn't resolve the issue, please give our support team a call.
