www. is depreciated

I may actually be insane.

Brilliant! It's something that I've been saying for quite some time now, and have tried to convince many people that the www. part of any domain is completely useless and should be banished to the back of a dark room and never used again... well, now there's a site all about it: http://no-www.org/

Admittedly it's hardly the most comprehensive site in the world, but it's not exactly a complex subject, it has the right information available to spread the word that www. is depreciated. :)

meh, couldn't care if its there or not. Although i do think www. at the begining look nicer sometimes :)
Yeah it sort of balances out the .com/.net/.org at the end...

But yeah, it is a bit redundant.

yeah, thats because you have
=*.osnn.net:<server ip>:<ttl> I think in your data file, if you are still using djbdns of course
I was not about to type out all the same +host.osnn.net entries by hand for all the sub-domains we serve :p.

Also, osnn.net is set as the default host, so even if you go to it's IP, it would show the osnn.net page.

now, mdsalih.com also accepts wildcards, but that is because i added a *.mdsalih.com entry to the serveralias in his virtualhost section.

this site can be accessed with no problem with or without www, and it should behave no differently.
