I am not the administrator here, just a user of a multisite installation.
The installation is set up with subdomains:
I'm being told that there's no way to configure things so that http://www.local1.myorg.net brings up local1.myorg.net instead of giving a DNS lookup failure.
I'm no whiz at this stuff, but that just seems wrong. So I'm asking here for any counterexamples or a pointer to documentation that has been used to make this work.
I don't have access to the WordPress version (3.4+, I'd guess) or the OS/Web Server platform that is being used, so it's possible the local infrastructure choices are making this harder than it might be. But I'm hoping to get some information to go back to the site administrators that will convince them it is possible to make life easier for all the members of the local organizations who do persist in putting "www" in front of all their web addresses.
And yes, I suspect this problem has NOTHING to do with WordPress, but I'm not sure where else to ask.
