"Naked" domain warning when setting up Zenfolio

All domains registered are "naked" domains, e.g. mydomain.com. There's nothing at the beginning, like "www" or "blog" or "shop". (Those are subdomains and can be created later, but you can't register a domain with them.)

When setting up your domain with your Zenfolio account, you will add the necessary DNS records in your iwantmyname account first. The easiest way to do this is with our one-click setup, and then you will need to complete setup in your Zenfolio account.

Then you will add your domain name and complete setup in your Zenfolio account. Be sure to use www.__DOMAIN__, which will enable visitors to access your site using either the naked domain or with www.

If you try adding the naked domain in Zenfolio, that's when it displays the "naked domain" error. Adding "www" to the beginning of the domain will fix the issue.
