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

I haven't set up any rewrites or url redirects, yet if I go to mydomain.com I am redirected to www.mydomain.com. Is there a default redirect that I'm missing, or is it something else? This is my first experience with IIS so there is a non zero chance I've overlooked something obvious.

Its possible its your DNS hosting. A lot of DNS hosters will automatically create or duplicate your mydomain.com record to be identical to www.mydomain.com. If you haven't set anything up on your web server I would suspect this is the culprit.
