Fix DNS for salemthegame.com

Postby Gloomy » Sat Mar 04, 2017 3:42 pm

Hey Devs,

Please have your host setup "salemthegame.com" to resolve at "www.salemthegame.com" Right now it's showing an unresolved DNS error or something.

Been a while since I set up sites, but think that's an easy fix.

afaik this is taken care of at browser level: most browsers will try to prepend www. if the original url does not resolve.
I have neither the crayons nor the time to explain it to you.

Sometimes it also make no sense to have a resolver at the domain itself.

www is the right value for web, just the most website operator set the same IP to the domain and www to make it easier for people to reach the website.

That is an extremely lazy attitude and it's obvious that your livelihood doesn't depend on web traffic. People typing in salemthegame.com are literally being sent to a blank error page. How many assume that this is just another failed game?

Is there any reason to tackle me, just because i explained that it sometimes makes sense not to set the IP?
But your are right, my livelihood is not depending on getting much web traffic, my is depending to prevent too much traffic. :D

You're right, poor attitude my apologies. I should've had coffee first.

I've honestly never heard that point of view, and I come from the POV of wanting every customer to easily be able to find my products. Anyway was just a suggestion, feel free to ignore it or close the thread.

You know that Kralith has little influence on this, right?

IF you feel this is so important, and you think the devs did not see you, go send them all a pm on the forums, they might still ignore it, but you might feel better if you do. ^^ (most importantly: JohnCarver, MarpTarpton)

Cool thanks. Don't really care that much, just thought it was an oversight.

I have wayyy too much work to do on my settlement before it gets raided and I'm homeless. I'm enjoying being back, the team has made amazing changes.
