On the IIS manager of Web server, there is an option for HTTP redirection. Did you check it?

Yes, I have tried that.
I think it's the previous web developer who has set up this redirection

That can perhaps be configured within the hosting DNS zone file

You can check your internal DNS server first. There might be a secondary zone setup for the domain you are browsing which is re-directed with CNAME or pointed as A record to some IP address.
Another place could be your DNS host. There might be CNAME record re-directing the www to another domain or IP.

Provide your actual URL. This is required to determine if the redirect is at the DNS or HTTP level.

Likely at the HTTP level. If this is true, then follow 13L@CK_H3@RT's comment, if you're using IIS.

If you're using Apache, then you'll get into the Apache config file + change the redirect in either the global config file or related vhost file.
