How to remove the www from your URL

By Jurgens du Toit

If you like simplicity, you might like to simplify your website’s URL. You can do this by adding the following in your .htaccess file, or in the VirtualHost declaration on your Apache setup.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]

The rewrite module for apache needs to be installed for this to work.

Remember that you can tell Google to list all links to your site with / without the www by setting that in the Webmaster Tools.
