Enable acess without WWW on Ubuntu

I have a 'clean' CentOS system with webmin, running Apache2 and BindDNS.

When I try accessing the domain without www, I get instantly redirected to www.domain.name, as the Firebug Net console screenshot below displays


What I need to know is; which are the most often reasons for this?

If you need any more info, cfg or log files, please let me know

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I believe this is not a problem with your server but with your browser. What browser and OS are you using? –  Melvin Apr 14 '10 at 12:07

Most likely scenario is a vhost configuration in apache set to something like:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName non-www-domain.com
    ServerAlias potential.com
    ServerAlias other-names.com

    Redirect / http://www.domain.com/

However I do wonder if it's your browser or DNS.

Check if domain.com and www.domain.com resolve to the same IP, if not then you might be looking at the wrong server. If one doesn't resolve then it's certainly the browser doing the redirect.
