Default typing abc.com opens http://abc.com and not http:/

I have a question on the DNS/redirection.
I have a Shopping cart application developed in asp.net 2.0 and for example when I type abc.com, the browser opens http://abc.com. I Instead of http://abc.com, I want it to open as http://www.abc.com

Eg see the difference by typing google.com in IE

google.com -> http://www.google.com

Is there any DNS entry that has to be resolved? or something else that
needs to be done.Do i have to do any settings on the server or i have to add anything code in web.config.

I don't think I want response.redirect property in my pages.

Thanks in advance.

When you request google.com, google responds with this:

HTTP/1.0 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://www.google.com/

They are simply detecting the URL http://google.com and forcibly redirecting you. This is not a function of DNS.

You could configure IIS to do this. Create a web site with the host header of "abc.com". This web site would simply be a redirector to www.abc.com.

Alternatively you could do the same URL check somewhere in code and then just redirect the client.
