I logged on to my domain at my service provider server using Parallels and added this .htaccess file to the root.
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.sowter.co.uk$1
Unfortunately I am still getting “WWW redirect” and “Common home page variations” errors when I run my SEO program.(See attachments).
I am at a loss to know what to do or even if it really matters. I am not sure I really need the non-www site at all in Google and I am tempted to just delete it on the dashboard. I have set www.sowter.co.uk
as my preferred URL.
What is puzzeling me is that I don't know the difference between a non-www and a www site from the point of how it is created. I simply created the site using Dreamweaver which I think uses FTP but I dont remember ever deciding which type it was to eb. How can I tell which it is?
