What is the easiest way to reroute connections to a domain name ot the correct address?
I.E. if someone types "http://domain.com" what's the easiest way to redirect it to "http://www.domain.com"?
I've put rules in the past in the virtualhosts config in httpd for opening up a root domain but would prefer redirection to the fqdn.

Ideas/tips?

In virtual hosts selection make virtual host:

<VirtualHost YOUR_SERVER_IP:80>
        ServerName domain.com
        Redirect / http://www.domain.com/
</VirtualHost>
