    It's an issue w/ the server (Apache) config file and the server doesn't know which directory to display for that request. You should file a ticket w/ GoDaddy...

    Had to do that maybe over 5 years ago. All good hosts do it automatically in recent years.

    Sometimes your ISP hijacks the non www. traffic but this case sounds like your web hosting company.

    you need to make sure your css is following the w3c compliance and it should work on all devices. to check a site search engine for w3c css and type in the web address in the box that appears
