Even better would be to configure your domain with [CreateWWW = false] 
and to use [vhostDefault] like I said.  Examples of both are found at:

P.S.: Every time I have to write an example, I get a little irate, 
because Domtool has a type system, such that the type of each directive 
tells you exactly how you can use it.  If you want to save everyone some 
time, you can read the Domtool docs further to learn to read types.
