I have a set up a bucket called "www.mydomainname.com" to host my website and I have configured the CNAME such that "www.mydomainname.com" points to the my endopint http://www.mydomainname.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/

It works and when people who type the the full url "www.mydomainname.com" are able to see my index page

But most people are in the habit of typing incoplete domain name -- they just type "mydomainname.com" and their browser fails to find my site.

Is there a way to configure CName or S3 bucket such that typing "mydomainname.com" take them to my s3 website ? (I am using Networksolutions as my DNS provider).

You would just add a CNAME for mydomainname.com pointing to www.mydomainname.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com.
