Question hide hostname in dns

Hi everyone ...

I want to configure my dns in order to answer to two differents url, for example when the people put www.mywebsite.com.mx or put mywebsite.com.mx ( without www ) my dns could send all the request to the same page an example of this is microsoft.com and www.microsoft.com.

Actually i have configured my webserver to attend www.mywebsite.com.mx but if i need to configure another virtualhost in my webserver in order to attend mywebsite.com.mx request i will do it.

Thanks in advanced.

Perhaps the use of the CNAME construct in DNS is all you need. Based on your note, this is what I would suggest you try.
