Domain isn't working without WWW, need naked domain to work

I'm not sure what settings are wrong as I've followed instructions online awhile ago, yet I'm still having problems. Anyone care to have a look and find what's wrong?

 

I already used the Forwarding section on the DNS management page to redirect the WWW-less domain to the with-WWW domain. That didn't seem to fix anything.

Hi @alpastor

When your site does not resolve without the 'www' that is an indication that your 'www' CNAME needs to be updated to '@" as the host name. Check out the instructions here on how to change your CNAME.

Re: Domain isn't working without WWW, need naked domain to work

When I try to change the 'www' CNAME to '@' as the host name, it says the specified record already exists. I think I need someone to look at my DNS records and specify what needs to be changed.  I'm not an expert at this and I've tried other solutions in on threads on  this subject - none of it worked. *sigh*

 

My CNAME www record is

cnamewwwwww180.wixdns.net1 Hour

 

The domain is for a website hosted by Wix.
