Why does the "www" disappear?

  1. Hello,

    Today I did the whole "domain mapping" thing and it was successful. However, I don't understand why, when I type in "http://www.mydomain.com," once my WordPress blog shows up, the address has changed to "http://mydomain.com."

    Why does the "www" disappear? It may seem like a silly question but I find it a little annoying. I wish it would show up properly!

    Did I do something wrong, and if so is there any way to fix it?

    Thanks in advance for any help,

    -Marina

  2. We automatically strip the www from all WordPress.com urls. It's not needed. We do it to avoid having content available at multiple addresses, which causes problems with search engines.

  3. Ah, well, I'm not experienced enough to understand how that could even happen, but it answers my question! ;-) So thank you very much.
