Someone showed this to me and I dont really understand its importance,




What is the significance of redirecting http://www.your-domain.com to http://your-domain.com?

Does it shorten load times/response times when loading a page?






P.S. does their page show up imporperly for you in IE?

Per their site;


use of the www subdomain is redundant and time consuming to communicate. The internet, media, and society are all better off without it.


In most cases there is no need to have the www so why use it at all, or so they believe.


As far as I can tell, they want you to redirect to show visitors that you dont want them to use the www. It does not reduce load times.


I had to refresh the page in IE to get it to display everything.

Another thing about the www is that if you have some links to your site with the www and some links to your site without the www, the search engines won't rank it as well as they would if they all went to one or the other.


At TCH it doesn't matter which you use - they both work and both go to the same web page on your site.... just be consistent in everything you do for your own sanity and better search engine ranking.
