    What's wrong with my server ??

    if i type in then it works
    but if i type in just then the page can not be displayed. does anyone know what's wrong w/ my server? is it the server's fault or DNS ?

    It can be either. Both hostnames need to have DNS A records pointing to the web server's IP address, and the server needs to be configured to accept them.

    If what you're getting is a DNS error, then you're probably missing the A record for If you get anything else it's probably the latter.

    Check the zonefile for the domain in question. Or you may wish to head over to and check to see if the www is pointing to the same A record.

    If you check the DNS zonefile and there is

    an A entry for the Domain name
    a CNAME entry for www

    then the problem is in the Apache httpd.conf file.

    There should be an entry similar to:

    You should have 2 aliases in you DNS configuration:
    1st ""
    2nd ""
