wordpress site works without "www." but not with "www"

I've seen this topic posted a few times on the GoDaddy Community, however, I am not getting any results that apply to my situation. I have set up the following site: "" (this is the link that works). After reviewing with the client, she and I have agreed due to printing stock, we would rather the site work as: "" as well. Currently, when entered with "www" a 404 error is received.

I have reviewed the previous posts about this topic, but nothing worked (adding CNAME, A, etc.), I received errors when attempting to resolve with previously mentioned fixes. The site is built on self hosted wordpress on go daddy servers. Please help and thanks in advance!
