Changed DNS and now www goes nowhere.

Help. I changed the DNS to move my site from a Joomla setup with www on Dreamhost to a non-www WordPress setup here and now goes nowhere. I can’t even ping it. I’m getting “Ping request could not find host Please check the name and try again.” resolves fine, but all my existing traffic is going to the www server. What do I need to do to fix this?

Did you resolve this? You need to ensure you have a CNAME for www that points to

FYI, the site with the www is working fine from where I’m sitting in NJ.
