OK, our domain (windows AD) is ahec.edu, our website is ahec.edu
from inside network typing in browswer only the term "ahec.edu" doesn't work because the A records in DNS servers used by my internal clients will resolve to our ahec.edu Domain Controllers.
(same as parent folder) Host(A) 10.100.10.10
we have a www record that points to our website, but of course this requires www.ahec.edu
now, i'm pretty freakin sure i can't delete the three same as parent A records for my domain controllers...right? If that is the case, how to solve the issue that folks typing in ahec.edu can't get to the website without adding www?
