[resolved] dropping www from the URL (3 posts)

    Just wondering if it's ok to simply remove the www from the URLs in Settings > General or if anything else would need to also be changed.

    This is a brand new site so I'm not worried about indexing problems.


  2. As long as the non-www DNS name points to the same web server instance, then you should be fine.

    Try going to the non-www DNS name in your browser. If you get redirected to the www version (by WordPress) then give it a shot.

    Changed it and was logged out but site still resolved. Logged back in and seems to be fine. Thanks.
