[Blogging Tips] How to Redirect Naked non-www Domain to www?

I have been unable to redirect my blog's naked domain to for 2 years but I finally found the solution!

What does this even mean?

Naked domain name:

Subdomain: www. or blog. or shop.

Complete domain name: or or

Without redirecting to, the naked domain doesn't work/open. Thus, you risk losing traffic to your website.

404 Naked domain cannot be opened

I blog from Blogger and bought my domain from Exabytes - they weren't being very helpful about it. I asked about it, they claimed to have solved the problem but it still didn't work. I feel cheated =( I Googled all over and found no solution, especially for Exabytes.

Then I found the awesome people at (OMG THANK YOU!)

Step 1) Open your blog's DNS Management

Step 2) Point your naked domain A-record to the IP address
Step 3) Wait 1-2 days for your DNS to update
