I have a domain name setup with LCN but I'm having a problem with the www. part of it on a PC.

On a mac if you type in www.teamworksdesign.com if we direct you to our holding page. However, if you type this in on a PC it goes to a page not found. If you remove the www. it works though.

This is what we have setup in our account:

Does anyone know what's going on?

UPDATE: This is what I have in my web server:

I'm guessing that the pc is caching a previous DNS miss.

It's doing the same on several different computers so don't think it's that. – Rob Jun 10 '11 at 13:29
Er wait... a CNAME should alias to a name, not an IP. Get rid of it, it's conflicting with the A record. – Alex Howansky Jun 10 '11 at 13:31
Ok CNAME's gone from LCN (the top image in my question), still doesn't work. – Rob Jun 10 '11 at 13:37
Ok, now it's probably a caching issue. :) – Alex Howansky Jun 10 '11 at 13:38
@Rob: the local PC is not the only one caching. It might very well be that your local network and/or ISP has the name in its cache too. – David Schmitt Jun 10 '11 at 14:16

Is your web server set up to answer both of the domain names? Some browsers tries adding/removing the www-part if it's not working.

Read up on VirtualHosts for apache (if that's what you are using)

I've updated my question with another image. – Rob Jun 10 '11 at 13:29
That picture looks more like another DNS config than a web server config? – m__ Jun 10 '11 at 13:33
It's the hosting control panel. – Rob Jun 10 '11 at 13:37
