Joy, :-) back again with an old problem, but needing a new answer. I just setup a domain, everything seems to be working fine except for the following... If you type in http://domain.com everything works fine, if you type in http://www.domain.com pulls up "Can not find server" page. Since I had a problem close to this before, I went back through and checked everything, and am unable to locate the problem. Ive checked the properties in IIS, I have the www.address.com and the address.com inserted in the advanced tab under the IIS site properties, ive checked over the DNS to make sure there is a www host A, made sure it loaded through both dns servers....Any suggestions?

In IIS Manager under the web site properties > Web site > Web site identification > Advanced button > Multiple idetities for this site > check if you have both domain.com and www.domain.com. I supose tou have only domain.com. If I am right then click add > IP Address = the server IP address > TCP port = 80 > Host header value www.domain.com > OK

Thats the first place I looked, I have the www.domain.com and domain.com in there, both have the correct IP address and the correct port number.

Ok Nevermind, that is weird, I went back into IIS Manager and into the properties of the site, I removed the www.domain.com and the domain.com, then recreated them, now everything is working. Guessing that would be a glitch.
