I have A record pointing to my machine but I can only see the domain and not the www.domain

Posted June 19, 2016 1.4k views

I am running wordpress on an Ubuntu machine and I have had the domain registrar point the domain’s A record to my machine (, however I cannot access the site through
At first the www would point back to the old site but after fiddling around with my 000-default.conf file and creating another A record with the domain registrar that points to my ip I get nothing and when I try to ping the www it cannot find the host.
Obviously I am doing something wrong
Please help

You’re likely just missing a CNAME record for the www subdomain. Can you post the full .conf file showing your records?
