    I set up my DNS record in directregister.com to point to my website

    changed the A record * to my new IP
    added the A record www to my new IP

    however, if I try to go to my domain and don't put in the www, I get an error.....

    if I put the www, it then goes to my site.


    I have seen this happen vice versa, but never this way.
    when I requested directregister to unlock the ability to allow DNS records change,
    they replied that they do not help with this and I am on my own.

    any ideas why this is happening?

    edit, n/m
    apparently the A record wasn't live yet, its working now, with and without the www.

    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    A record * means wildcard as in a.example.com, b.example.com, c.example.com, etc.

    If you want example.com to resolve, add <blank> in A <IP>

    www should be an A record, not a CNAME.
