    How to create Redirect non-www to www using htaccess

    Technically speaking, both www and non-www are 2 different websites and as such may be penalised by search engines for duplicated content. From an SEO perspective it is always best practice to redirect your non-www site URL to www or your wwww. to your non-www version.

    Our site www.accrodigital.com, for example, has a redirection from non-www (http://accrodigital.com) to www (http://www.accrodigital.com). In other, everytime anyone type http://accrodigital.com will be redirected to www.accrodigital.com. Note the "www" in the second URL.

    Technically, the non-www version and the www version are two different domains. So redirecting one to the other improves our SEO. Google and other search engines won't have to worry about two different domains.

    This tutorial will show you how to redirect your whole website to either non-www or www.

    Please note that you will need to find and access your htaccess file. It is located at the root of your website server.

    1. Locate the following line within your htaccess file

    RewriteEngine On

    2. To redirect non-www to www, add this code below it:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [L,R=301]

    3. To redirect www to non-www, add this code after RewriteEngine On:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.yourdomain.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://yourdomain.com/$1 [L,R=301]

    I hope that this tutorial will help you. Please leave your comment below if any.
