If I have the following records in the DNS:
hostname Record Type address benmccormack.com A 188.8.131.52 www.benmccormack.com CNAME benmccormack.com
What should the user expect to see in a browser's address bar when they type in http://benmccormack.com? how about http://www.benmccormack.com? I was expecting that I would see http://www.benmccormack.com change to http://benmccormack.com in the address bar, but perhaps I misunderstand how a CNAME record is supposed to work.
(Note: I just updated the dns for my site about 15 minutes ago, so perhaps the changes haven't propagated yet.)
