hrmm.. funny - to me, it looks like 'www.website.com' is an alias for

aura% dig www.website.com

;www.website.com.               IN      A

www.website.com.        900     IN      CNAME   website.com.
website.com.            900     IN      A

oh... you mean your site *isn't* named website.com?  well then perhaps
you'd better give us the real name....

i don't think this is a DNS issue, however - it more likely has to do
with the settings of the RAQ's webserver if the URL is changing in a web
browser or whatever.
