you have to add a www entry to the dns, I think an A record with www on the left and @ on the right will do the trick. After adding it, wait 15+ minutes for the new entry to appear, and the old cached entry to expire.
Its working now.

I put www in the left column and @ in the right column in CNAME record.

thinking about it, I think @ on the right will only work with a CNAME.

if you add an A, put in your IP address on the right,
if you add a CNAME, put in on the right

CNAME or A will work, you only need one or the other, not both.

My domain is not working with http but it is working with www. How to overcome this?
