Using .htaccess to redirect non-www to www and vice-versa

SEO Tips - Redirect non-www to www using htaccess


Use the code below to redirect non-www to www:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]

This will redirect http://domain.com to http://www.domain.com.

What are the benefits of redirecting a website:

  1. Avoid duplicate content in  Google and other Search Engines.
  2. Avoid split page rank for inblound links.
  3. A more consistent URL.

 Use the code below if you want to do the opposite:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^domain\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

 Be sure to replace domain.com with your own domain.

 That's it.
