    My domain name is currently I’d like to change it to (adding the “www” prefix). How difficult is that to do and how much would it cost?
    Blog url:



    We actually strip out the www. for convenience, and will redirect to

    www is an old protocol from back when everything was under a separate server. www ( was the web server, mail ( was the mail server, ftp ( was the FTP server, print ( was the print server, etc.

    These days, everything is run under the web server, making www. redundant and a waste of four characters.



    Thank you for your rapid answer. The reason that I wanted to prefix my URL with “www” is that I find that when I type my URL in an email or document, a hyperlink will only be attached if I prefix it with “www”. Otherwise, I have to manually insert the hyperlink, a minor pain.
