    Wonder why you need it to show such, but.... When you set up the domain name you should have the option, usually under DNS options, to resolve to both the www.name.com and the name.com. Also for some reason, some sites using newer versions of Firefox seem to only want to show the name without the www prefix.

    If your non www url also points to your server, then you could do a 301 redirect via htaccess! Copy paste this in your htaccess if that is the case (i guess hostgator has mod_rewrite enabled. Please confirm with them):

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^domain\.com 
    RewriteRule (.*) http://domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    
    If that's not the case, then you might have to configure your domain properly....
