"This is down to DNS.

This is dependent on your host, and you may want to ask them for help if you haven't done it before.

Basically, you need to set a record in the mysite.com zone called www, make it a Cname with a value of mysite.com.

If you do not have an option just to create a cname, then try creating a record for WWW.mysite.com anyway you can and put the same value (ip) in for it as you do for the main non-www address.

You also need to set host headers up on the web server, but this really should of already been done."
