Why does my website not open without the www prefix?

rishi August 21, 2011

I bought a new domain for my Blogger. The domain name is www.justnewsnow.com.

But it can not open without www, i.e. justnewsnow.com does not open,
it shows error 404 not found in Google Chrome.

    Is this only works for blogger?

    From what I remember this setup (www and no-www) requires advanced settings within blogger.com or Google Apps or whatever is responsible.

    If you set http://www.yourdomain.com as your primary (custom) domain within Blogger any and all other FQDN pointing to the blog will result in a 404 error. The same applies to a CNAME entry at your DNS-Server because this will only forward DNS but not the URL you use to request the blog.

    I suggest to contact Google / Blogger for help because this seems to be highly confusing. If you still want to do it yourself maybe this will help

    A website that can load with "no www" is called aliasing with URL forwarding. This is an issue with your domain name servers. I see you registered it with "Directi Internet Solutions Pvt" at PublicDomainRegistry.com, do they also host for you? 

    In your administration panel, do you have an area to adjust the nameservers? I think using a CNAME would be best here.
