No "www." for Web Site

Hello, Experts!  I have multiple web sites with multiple Internet domains on a single Windows 2003 Server with IIS.  

If you type in "www." before each domain in a web browser, the default index.html page loads fine.  However, if you just type "domainA.com", the default page doesn't come up but with "domainB.com" it does.

The domains are registered with Network Solutions.  I checked the DNS settings for each domain in our account.  The "@none" is set to the same IP as "www" for both sites so I'm starting to think this is an IIS problem.

In IIS, there is one site for each domain as well. Each has the "www.domainX.com" and "domainX.com" Host Header Values set to the same internal address.  Both domains have their respective index.html home files.

What I can't seem to find is the area where IIS is told to load index.html if no page is specified -- assuming that's the same area where I can configure it to load index.html for "domainA.com" without "www.".

Hopefully that makes sense.

Yes, already been there, checked that.  All related IP addresses are the same for both domains for "www" and "@ (none)" under their Advanced DNS.

Add another binding

You should have one for domain name and www.domain name! ;)

Check your websites on IIS to confirm if host headers are enabled.
If yes then you'll need to add the domain without the www. as well.

Sorry, guys... I'm an idiot.  This was only happening from within our LAN.  It's not happening outside of our network.  Both domainA.com and domainB.com work without the www.  I need to change the internal DNS.

This wasn't a problem outside on the Internet, only from within our own LAN.
