I have Ubuntu running with Apache2, my website shows in browser when www.example.com but doesn't show when example.com, my website is in /home/username/public_html/example.com/public.

I used following, which doesnt work

sudo bash -c "cat >> /etc/apache2/sites-available/example.com <<EOF

<VirtualHost *:80>

  ServerName  www.example.com
  ServerAlias example.com
  DocumentRoot /home/username/public_html/example.com/public

You should look into /etc/hosts. You need to include both: www.example.com example.com

Let me know if that works.
