I'm running an up-to-date version of a WP multi-site network successfully (homepage and subdomains all work), with only one problem.

My domain loads perfectly with the www., but when the www. isn't preceding, it loads up to this page: http://www.domain.com/wp-signup.php?new=domain.com.

I've never had this problem with WP before, so I'm looking for a way to fix this... Trying to make www.domain.com and domain.com load up the homepage fine, and be like my regular WP sites ending up in the address bar as http://www.domain.com/

How can I achieve this? What must I edit?

Thank you for your help in advance.

If you know the solution to the problem post it and accept it as the correct answer. – John Conde Mar 24 '11 at 12:04

What web server are you running? If it's Apache, it's possible that you just need to add a ServerAlias to the domain's VirtualHost entry in your config.

You can add a ServerName and ServerAlias, so for example:

ServerName www.example.com
ServerAlias example.com

The ServerAlias will redirect to ServerName. Check the Apache VirtualHost directive docs or the equivalent for your web server if not running Apache.
