Using domain name with www (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I've started two wordpress sites on godaddy, using 2.9.1 and installed them in the root directory. On both sites when I type in the url like http://www.examplesite.com the website works but automatically transfers to http://examplesite.com

    Is there a way to install this or change a setting so it will stay at just http://www.examplesite.com and is there a reason that I should stay away from this if it is possible.

    Thanks for your help!

    Thanks, I appreciate the direction.

    So after reading that, and the replies, I'm not sure forcing the www is the way I want to go, but I'll keep researching.

    Any advice on positives and negatives of forcing this.
