I just want to know how to config the htaccess to do this one function:

say someone comes in typing www.domain.dom 

I want to have them arrive at domain.com

Same true for all links. Anything that comes in with www. it trims it out. I just want to keep my url short for when google indexes me the first time.

Create a .htaccess file with following content

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

You can find more info at

I found this snippet on this page:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   !^fully\.qualified\.domain\.name [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   !^$
RewriteRule ^/(.*)         http://fully.qualified.domain.name/$1 [L,R]

I think this is just about what I need. Still could use a little advice.

redirects perfectly.

I had 2 of those lines in the joomla code already. I simply put them in the same order and it seems to be working within the other commands joomla is doing on the url.
