I have added my domain, Proaffiliatelinks.com, as a domain and created a website/app.

I can access the site via http://proaffiliatelinks.com, but not via http://www.proaffiliatelinks.com

You'll need to add the www subdomain prefix to your proaffiliatelinks.com domain in the control panel. Then you'll need to add www.proaffiliatelinks.com to the website record you created. That should solve the problem.

I had the same problem. Isn't this supposed to be default behaviour? That http://myurl.com would point to http://www.myurl.com? Meaning that i should not need to add the extra subdomain www. Actually now i know it, it is ok (at least i can fix it). But still ...

'myurl.com' and 'www.myurl.com' are completely separate domains in the DNS system, so we treat them as such.

Doing this gives you complete control over what you serve and where you want to serve it.
