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

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


What does this even mean?


Naked domain name: theisabellee.com

Subdomain: www. or blog. or shop.


Complete domain name: www.theisabellee.com or blog.theisabellee.com or shop.theisabellee.com

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

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 wwwizer.com (OMG THANK YOU!)


Step 1) Open your blog's DNS Management

Step 2) Point your naked domain A-record to the IP address 174.129.25.170
Step 3) Wait 1-2 days for your DNS to update

I waited a few hours for the DNS to update then gave it a try.

Ta-da! Now both www.theisabellee.com and theisabellee.com work.

So grateful for wwwizer.com for providing this service free of charge, no strings attached.
