www. does not work for virtual servers (virtualmin), only http:// will work

I have set up Ubuntu Server 14.04 droplet with virtualmin. I am able to create virtual servers that is reachable (firefox) at their own domainnames using http://virtualdomainnamehere.tld, but if I try www.virtualdomainnamehere.tld I get “server not found” These virtual domainnames are registered at godaddy.

On my MAIN droplet domain I added the CNAME www @, and for this domain using www.maindomain.tld works ok, but not on the virtual domains set up inside Virtualmin.

Do I have to add each virtual servers domainname in the DO droplet DNS area and add a CNAME entry for each of them, or how do I fix this?

What nameservers are you using? If, you will need to add your DNS records DigitalOcean’s DNS control panel. In that case, you also don’t need to bother adding them to Virtualmin as you are not using its DNS nameservers.
