Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've assigned a virtual host for the domain www.website.com on my hosting.

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/sites/mywebsite
    ServerName www.website.com

Now I've just realized that "website.com" is not forwarded to the correct path. Should I add a new virtualhost for it ? Or add a new ServerName parameter ? (it's the same path)

The simplest way is to add a ServerAlias.

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName www.domain.com
ServerAlias domain.com
# ...

first of all you have to make sure that in your DNS configuration you point to the right server address because if i am not misunderstanding from your case, that you actually can create point different machine for 1. website.com - f.e point to 2. www.website.com - f.e point to
