You should have a record in

You should have a record in your DNS pointing www.eastcoastrolling.info to eastcoastrolling.info

Additionally you may need to

Additionally you may need to go into your Virtual Server Options > Networking and Addresses and add your www in the Alternate virtual server names. I don't know if that is required but I needed to do that for my virtual hosts.

That looks like a much better way of doing it!

Nice work Neil!

Off the top of your head do you know if a similar config is easily done for Lighhtpd? No dramas if you don't, because I could always google it but I'm feeling lazy (and I don't need to know right now cause my redirect page works fine, just wondering for future reference cause your way looks much better).

Thanks anyway

Yeah I'm sure they do too. Just you seem pretty knowledgable and thought you may know off the top of your head.

I just had a quick google and this looks pretty straight forward (for anyone else who is interested).

Here's a redirect page that I use

There are many ways to redirect pages. For a full rundown and pros and cons of different methods some online research is the best bet. Google will give you many ideas and approaches to the issue.

I have successfully used javascript and I am happy to share the code I use (as I robbed it from someone online already anyway). This works fine for me, but requires javascript to be enabled (it will give a warning if javascript is disabled/not available). This page will need to be saved as index.htm on the www root of the server which www.example.com points to.

Hope that helps.
