To www or not to www? May 25, 2008

The web evolves and changes very rapidly. A change in which people have been resistant to is the change from www to non-www domain names such as http://www.example.com to http://example.com. In both situations you have a redirection from the one to other to guarantee seamless use.

However cutting off the www element you save time and money. You don’t have to SAY www anymore. You can just say that ‘my site is example.com’. Saves time, and no, I am not going to say time is money. Not yet anyway.

Cutting off the www also means it is faster to type (in Firefox, the retro IE still does not support this) but most importantly easier to memorise and remember. Hence more money.

If there is any reason you think you should keep www, I would very much like to hear it.

  • Hello, I've been doing some research on this topic for SEO purposes. If you're getting links to your website, it's best to be consistent either way, use www all the time or not at all. Normally, there are times when you can't control what people use to link to your site. In those cases, it's best to use a 301 redirect from the www version so that your incoming links look consistent to the search engines.
