Please note that if you set your domain to Active before your domain resolves, your stylesheet and design will disappear. To get your design back, you will need to deactivate domain mapping .
Removing the www prefix
For the domain to work without the www, a forward needs to be set up at Network Solutions. You may need to upgrade your Network Solutions account in order to have access to adjust the forwarding of your domain.
