Yahoo Search link shows Page is Not Displayed

When I type in a search term for our company web page, I will use thistest.com as an example, into Google, it comes up with a link www.thistest.com, and when I click on the link, it displays the web page as it should.

When I type in a search term for the same thing into Yahoo, it comes up with a link   thistest.com    and when I click on the link, it says Page is Not Displayed.

When I type thistest.com into the search bar in Internet Explorer, it automatically converts it to www.thistest.com and it displays the website as it should.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve it so Yahoo displays the page correctly?

I guess it's not a problem to talk about our company website.

When I type in a search term for our company web page, Midwest Energy, into Google, it comes up with a link www.midwestenergy.com, and when I click on the link, it displays the web page as it should.

 When I type in a search term for the same thing into Yahoo, it comes up with a link  Midwestenergy.com and when I click on the link, it says Page is Not Displayed.

 When I type Midwestenergy.com into the search bar in Internet Explorer 11, it automatically converts it to www.midwestenergy.com and it displays the website as it should.

The problem seems to be that Yahoo does not have the www before midwestenergy.com

When I go to the Yahoo Home Page and type into the search bar    Midwest energy   and then choose the link that is for our website, it comes up with Page is Not Displayed.  I tried it in Ask.com and that linked correctly.  I tried Google, and that was linked correctly.  Bing. com did the same as Yahoo, Page is Not Displayed.

Yes, it is the one called Midwest Energy (3rd link down) and underneath it is midwestenergy.com   - that is the one that says Page is Not Displayed

Ok I think I see what might be going on.  the WWW is missing from the Yahoo search.. so you are hosting your own website internally possibly?  Your domain name for your network is also midwestenergy.com so your internal DNS server isnt set up to forward to www would seem to be the issue.

Is this an issue?  It works fine outside your internal network.

Both links with and without the www are working fine (though you should redirect to one or the other and not have both working)

Thank you for the answer.  I didn't realize it works fine outside of our network.  Is there a way to set up our internal DNS server so that it forwards to www?

You need to set an A record for @ to point to www ip  address

Kind of like this
