How to make my site always show www subdomain

IIS7

The way my site works right now is even if you type into the browser "mycurrenwebsite.com" it will redirect to "www.mycurrenwebsite.com"

But, if I type in "mycurrenwebsite.com/mypage.html" it will redirect to 404 page.
If I type in "www.mycurrenwebsite.com/mypage.html" then it will show the page correctly.

What can I do to always redirect to a www version? So that even if I type in "mycurrenwebsite.com/mypage.html" it will redirect me to
"www.mycurrenwebsite.com/mypage.html"

create a cname (dns) record for mycurrentwebsite.com to point to www.mycurrentwebsite.com

You can also configure a URL redirect as outlined in this tutorial:

@Ivanovn  is correct.

You want to install the IIS URL Rewrite module which is free on your web server. Once installed, you can setup a basic conanical name rewrite rule to always ensure domain.com/XXXXXX/xXXX/xXX is always sent to www.domain.com/....
