Can't access my website after adding "www."

  1. I noticed my website link only worked if the URL was "" (hosted thru Tumblr). If I put in "", Tumblr would give me a "NOT FOUND" page.

    So I figured it was something on the back end: I logged into my WordPress admin page (, went in and added "www." to the site's URL in settings (I think it was the settings page, can't remember exactly) and saved changes.

    As soon as I hit "Save Changes", I was directed to the Tumblr "NOT FOUND" splash page.

    Now the website URL redirects to the NOT FOUND page so NO ONE can get to my site.

    When I try to go to EITHER "" ORRRR "", I'm always redirected to the NOT FOUND page.

    What do I do? Could really use some help, not too savvy with websites. Thanks!
