Cant reach my site without www. Site is not available.

Hi there, today I’ve found this nasty surprise. I can’t access my site without using www. I really can’t understand why. I’m using DO server and DNS configuration is on another provider. I pointed the www to DO and it works fine but if I try to reach my site w/o www I get “site is not available”. Does anyone of you know how to fix it, please? Do I have to create an A record with @ pointing to DO server?

Thanks, KR, Chango.

Hi! Yes, you will need to create another record for the “origin”, which is your domain name without the leading “www.”: it should be an A record with the name of “@” that points to your droplet’s IP address.

thanks, guys this helps me too. :-)

You saved my life. Thanks a lot.
