We have a domain that we use internally, but as our Company Public name has changed our external website also has a secondary alias which visitors are now encouraged to use.

however we are unable to allow access to this without using the www. prefix.
Our primary domain name allows access externally without www.
however niether domain name website alias can be accessed without www prefix internally..

I believe our external DNS has a www Host (A) record for the primary domain name forward lookup zone, but not for our secondary.

Our internal DNS has a www Host (A) record for the primary domain name forward lookup zone, and a www Alias (CNAME) for our secondary.

We'd like to allow users to access either domain name / alias with our without the www prefix externally and if possible internally too..
