Send domain.com to WWW.domain.com

GoDaddy Config Forward WWW

If your website is hosted at Blogger or Typepad, and you wish to use a custom domain, this can be a challenge. The method which follows is designed for those webhosts and someone who has GoDaddy as their registrar.  It should work fine for anyone who doesn’t need things like FTP or email from the same domain name.

First of all, DO NOT delete the A (Host) record – I’ve seen people who do, but I don’t think it’s necessary.  What I like to do is create two CNAMES (at GoDaddy look under Manage Domains and Total DNS Control and MX Records).

One CNAME is www and have it point to ghs.google.com (BLOGGER) OR yourname.typepad.com (TYPEPAD).  The next CNAME is domain.com and have it point to www.domain.com and that should forward it.  Wait about 24-48 hours for the changes to take.
