If someone enters the name of a website url in the address bar but leaves out the www. how do you make it forward to the www.websiteurl.com

For example if i just type in google.com or yahoo.com to the address bar I get taken to http://www.google.com or http://www.yahoo.com

If i type in homestarrunner.com or bionovix.com I get taken to http://homestarrunner.com or http://bionovix.com (no www in the address).  The site loads up right but at my company we have some replicating site issues that only work correctly when someone is located at the www.website.  Is this a setting on the domain or is this done through some sort of javascript or php?
