Having issue with my domain. If I put www in front of it, it doesn't work,

Hi.  I'm new to the domain world.  I just set mine up today.  The problem I'm having is if I put www in front of it then it doesn't work, but if I just type it in followed by .com it works.  It was working earlier with the www.

Can someone please help me?  I just ordered business cards with www.

It sounds like you are missing www CNAME in your dns...


Assuming your dns is with GoDaddy goto and select your domain and then manage DNS 


You can add a CNAME where the host is www and points to is @

I recommend setting the TTL to custom / 600 and you should be good to go
