• Get application security done the right way! Detect, Protect, Monitor, Accelerate, and more…
  • Redirecting requests from a non-preferred domain is important because search engines consider URLs with and without “www” as two different websites.

    It creates a duplicate entry, which is not suitable for SEO.

    I noticed this when you analyze your site with SEO tool, thought to share with you all.

    You can redirect non-www to www or www to non-www using “.htaccess” or “httpd.conf”

    www to non-www redirection

    • Ensure to take a backup of your existing file (.htaccess or httpd.conf)
    • Add the below line and save this file
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.yoursite.com 
    RewriteRule (.*) https://yoursite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Non-www to www redirection

    • Ensure to take a backup of your existing file (.htaccess or httpd.conf)
    • Add the below and save this file
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yoursite.com 
    RewriteRule (.*) https://www.yoursite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Test your site again to confirm it’s working as expected.
