    I added a domain, the hostname was default - www.

    When I look at co-domains there is an extra hostname without www. (just blank)

    When I visit it resolves fine, but when I visit it just says "page could not be displayed".

    What can I do to access my domain without www.? It's pretty important.

    This is not a problem of the site settings in ispconfig. Add a dns a-record for pointing to your server ip at the authoritive dns server

    Sorry.. I don't quite understand, where do I add it? Somewhere in ISPConfig? Whereabouts? Or on my domain control panel with my registrar?

    If you use the DNS server from your registrar, than you will need to set it there.

    You will see a A record with as host text: WWW pointing to the server IP.
    Now add a A record with a @ as host text and point it to the server IP. (or if you want you can change the WWW into @)

    A @ is a wildcard, and will forward any request for that domain to the set IP.

    Please note that after changing this it might take some time to see it work!

    Well, currently I'm using ISPConfig for DNS.. the only things I've ever changed on the registrar are the NameServers.

    I think I have to upgrade the domain for advanced DNS management, is there anyway to do this using ISPConfig instead?

    Thanks for your help!
