    My site is hosted using an internal server. When entering "www.mysite.com" it works. But leaving out "www" does not work. Any way to create a redirect of some sort? If so, how do I do it? Thanks!

    Pose the question to your domain registrar. They will have a setting to resolve your URL without the www.

    What name servers are you using for DNS?

    What kind of web server are you running?

    It is either a problem with your "a" record(s) in the name server(s), or a problem with your web server configuration.

    Not certain about this, but isn't a CNAME pointer necessary to enable what the OP is going for?

    Your www A record needs to be pointed to @, or at the very least the same IP as @.

    you need to modify settings in the htaccess file for the redirection, there are many tutorials for doing this that you can find by using google.
