Default www. is deprecated

According to No-WWW.org, the inclusion of www. in URLs is deprecated and necessary for only a few sites. All others can accept URLs both ways.

I have often wondered why some URLs work without it, some don’t. The No-WWW site explains everything. Their “modest proposal” is for web site makers to configure their main sites so they can be reached by domain.com as well as www.domain.com.

It makes sense. The WWW stands for World Wide Web, and of coure all our sites are automatically on it.

Anyway, get the whole story at the site, along with some .htacess code for controlling how your site URLs work (if it is necessary).
