    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.


    WWW is becoming completely passe and virtually no one is using it anymore as most think it is redundant (everything is on the world wide web) and everyone likes the cleaner look to their URL. does not use the WWW either on the standard subdomain URLs here, or on mapped domain names. If someone types your domain name in with the WWW, it will automatically be redirected to the non-WWW domain name.


    From: .

    Also, please note that automatically removes the “www” from all URLs.


    And I should have refreshed as @macmanx covered it.



    No worries. Two answers are always better than one, especially when they agree. :)
