What's difference between http:// and http://www

Is there really a difference between a website domain with http://abcdomain.com and http://www.abcdomain.com?

I’m not sure what you mean. Technically, www.abcdomain.com is a subdomain of abcdomain.com, but most websites today can be accessed either way. Some even think that www is deprecated: http://no-www.org

:agree: However, I’m too stuck on using www for my marketing. Many companies use www as well.

Whatever you decide to use, always keep it consistent.

Also … you might want to use a 301 redirect to make sure all your incoming links, no matter which version people use to link you, all resolve to the same thing. Otherwise it might take a bit away from your SEO and PR.

At the end of the day, http://www.domain.com and http://domain.com
they are 2 diffrent domain name’s if your aiming for a PR of 5 on http://domain.com then obviously don’t expect to get it on http://www.domain.com

i do prefer www.

or the lack of it can create cool looking ones like my newest one www.im :slight_smile:

I still prefer usage of http://www. for my SEO. It’s a Common usage not to use the www.


its like potato you can pronounse it anyways, but you have to stick to one for SEO

you should really edit your .httaccess file so that it will resolve to the name you want…
