Drop the www. part of your domain name

Stop using www. as part of your domain name, there is no good reason to use it and it does make saying your web address quite difficult.

The www part of web links, like http://www.yourdomain.com/, became a standard in the early days of the world wide web. The www part is not needed and should become a thing of the past.

Announce your website as http://yourdomain.com/ and make the www variant available to those users who add www in front of your domain because they believe all Universal Resource Locations must be entered like this.

Apache users can do this by adding a .htaccess in the root of www.yourdomain.com with the contents RedirectPermanent / http://yourdomain.com/. This will also redirect files, http://www.yourdomain.com/foo.html will be redirected to http://yourdomain.com/foo.html.
