I hardly ever type the www infront of the URL i want.

It pisses me off to see sites that do not have that configured.

The ironic part of this is that you would expect a company that deals with domains, and its sole business is domain names to NOT have that trouble...

well here is one that pisses me off whenever i visit it.

I don't understand why everyone who has a domain doesn't have a wildcard zone file so that anything.domain.com resolves.

If you convert traffic, doing this can bump up the levels nicely on some domains.

yep, agree....just one example: There seems to be a huge amount of weirdos out there who just type stuff like wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.wwww.org into their browsers...and all that traffic finally ends up on my site (as long as they type wwww.org in the end of course).

Happens quite a lot :D

Many reasons why, many people don't understand cnames or aliases when they set up their own internet servers.

This is never a problem with professional outsourcing of hosting and dns management.

I doubt it is stupidity, just lack of awareness. Not everyone on planet earth are professional domain speculators with indepth knowledge of DNS. Many are just good and profitable companies new to the internet.

But it sure feels good to criticize these www unaware companies for their stupidity, since it implies we are smarter than them :D Human psychology 101.

Which is why this world needs NORMAL professionals, Nic.

Many people are still banking high hopes into .com because of a temporary quirk in history.

They are just simply unaware of the future, and what has changed and will change.

It is obvious .com is the primary address route today. That's a no brainer duh and too easily rationalised. Even a 2 year old will tell you so. Its a defensive paradigm to maintain hopes in .com. But a deadly paradigm that blinds into the ability to understand future potential.

mole, what's the point of bringing this up all the time. you have your .biz and .info domains. if you want to help make these extensions popular, start developing serious web sites instead of trying to convince everyone that they will be of high value someday

Ok, I'll admit I am stupid, but how do I configure domains to work without the www
