When entering crimetech.net in the browser bar, we get a "timed out" error. When entering www.crimetech.net, the site comes through fine.

Is there a way to make the shortened version acceptable? Many websites today allow the shortened version. We're wondering if we could receive more traffic from potential customers if they have easier access - and won't leave us in cyberdust when they get the timed out error.


This is the message received when crimetech.net is entered:

The connection has timed out.

The server at crimetech.net is taking too long to respond.

    The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I made an adjustment to your DNS settings. It seems to be ok now.
