I have an Exchange server with domain name constructionpascallanoue.ca.  Now, a webdesigner buit our website and transfer it on Hostpapa. When internal clients try to access the site it points to the Exchange server. I want to make a redirection to force the clients use www instead of http://constructionpascallanoue.ca. Don't want to add another server with  corp zone. It has a .htaccess file wich would be I think the file to put the code for redirection. What do you think? I'm not a webmaster and unfortunetly the web designer is unreachable. Add entry in host file didn't fix the problem.

 Thanks

 Serge

You are on Apache so the htaccess should work - are you saying it isn't?

Your site is redirecting www to the non www version
In your httpd.conf file check your virtualhost settings for any redirect lines but this could also be in the php code.
You will also need a virtualhost block for the www. version, which you may not have - depends on your setup.

Thanks Gary, that means the webdesigner could easily resolve that. I'm not a webdesigner and don't know where to start ;(

Yes, unless you know what you are doing you could mess it up, if you are on shared hosting then the host may be able to do it for you.
