.htaccess is for the Apache web server. Since you're on a IIS server, you have to edit a file called web.config instead - the equivalent to .htaccess on Windows. Much like Apache needs the rewrite module, for this to work you will need the IIS Rewrite module.

If you prefer to do things manually, simply open your web.config file and add the following code to the <system.webServer> section. Make sure you replace example.com with your own domain.

Code:
<rewrite>
    <rules>
        <rule name="Force WWW" stopProcessing="true">
            <match url=".*" />
            <conditions>
                <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^example.com$" />
            </conditions>
            <action type="Redirect" url="http://www.example.com/{R:0}" redirectType="Permanent" />
        </rule>
    </rules>
</rewrite>

Otherwise, there is a GUI in IIS to add rewrite rules which you might find easier. See the first part of this tutorial for some information:
