Mysite.com or www.mysite.com?

What is the best setting for these in Wordpress?

WordPress Address (URL)
Site Address (URL)

Should I have mysite.com or www.mysite.com?

Thanks,

Jon

It’s completely up to you. Just make sure to choose one or the other. :slight_smile:

www is actually a subdomain. It’s a vestige of the past. Naturally, if you use only the non-www version of the name (as I do), you should make sure your DNS is set up to properly direct www requests to your site then use htaccess to issue a redirect to the non-www.

its up on you. Better you go with [noparse]www.yoursite.com[/noparse].
Not to forget to go with ‘canonical’.

It surely doesn’t matter in this day and age. The site should work either way and go to the same index page. I always have a bias toward www.mysite.com due to visitors always using www.
