domain does not resolve

    Please forgive my ignorance if any. I am new to plesk and windows servers.

    I recently purchased a windows machine, and put plesk on to it. I put one domain on to it so far. I had some problems along the way, but I think that I have the domain finally installed correctly.

    When I access the domain as http://domainname.com it asks me for a user, pass, and domain. I can enter whatever I want there because there is no authentication actually happening. Even if I use a valid user/pass combination I get nothing.

    When I access the site as http://www.domainname.com I get the properly resolved domain.

    What causes this. If I was on my linux box I would look at httpd.conf, but I don't think that apache is being used here, and I have no idea where the configuration file for the Windows server is located.

    Anyone here have any ideas that might work?

    Hi, quick question...

    When you created your domain, did you typed WWW.yourdomain.com or just yourdomain.com

    Did you have " DNS zone by the template WWW Prefix" selected?

    It may be a conflict on one of those things....

    By default, when I created a domain I have "DNS zone by the template WWW Prefix" selected and i never add the WWW prefix on the new domains i create manually into plesk.
