Hello,

    I'm trying to add the correct entry for my website to resolve without the "www" on the Network Solutions hosting.

I thought it was the "@" a record for none, but I'm not sure. It appears to refer to all. i've also read that I should use a CNAME. Currently my website A record is "www" and the IP address. That resolves fine, but when a user enters http://mywebsite.com it does not correctly resolve to www.mywebsite.com. I'm sure it's an easy entry, just want to be sure.

The @ record should be the IP address of the web server and the www record can be either a cname for the domain without www or an a record for the IP of the web server as well.

Something like:

@  A 11.22.33.44
www  CNAME @
0

That did it. I didn't go with CNAME, just left A record for www. Thank you!
