How to Redirect Non-WWW to WWW

The easiest way to redirect domain.com to www.domain.com on the url address bar whenever someone omits or skips the www from domain.com is to configure the Apache web sever.


An Apache 301 redirect is the most efficient and search engine friendly method for webpage redirections. You can place following code in a .htaccess file directly from your DirectAdmin Control Panel.


1. Once logged into your Control Panel using the File Manager goto your domains "public_html" folder.


2. At the bottom locate "Create New File" and enter ".htaccess" and click create, inside the editor box paste the code below.

 

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain\.com

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]


3. Replace "domain.com" with your own domain name.
