    How do i redirect domain.com to www.domain.com i tired to edit my .htaccess file but it wont work. I have mod_rewrite on i use it for sef urls in joomla.

    Setup a A record in DNS with something like this and enable Auto Subdomain:

    domain.com in A www in A ip.dd.re.ss
    www in A ip.dd.re.ss

    I have it like that and it works without htacess.

    There's no A record for dial4tech.com:

    Code:
    mh1:~# dig dial4tech.com
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> dial4tech.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd

    I think you forgot the dot in your DNS record:

    Code:
    A dial4tech.com[COLOR="Red"][B].[/B][/COLOR] 67.40.184.249

    Yes, the "." as the suffix of the domain indicates that 'that' is the fully qualified domain name
