Forum Topic: redirecting wwww to www
Recently it become apparent that I need to redirect to www when user input wwww, ww and w by mistake. I am sure i should be able to do the with .htacess but not having much luck.
Because of the way my server is set up everytime someone uses a wrong combination of the w’s they get redirected to the first site in my domains folder which houses all my sites.
So for example if I have two domain in the domains folder,
xyz.com and the user enters
wwww.xyz.com they arrive at
www.123.com, I want them to arrive at
Am I right in think I can do this with .htaccess, the server is ubuntu linux
If this can be dne could you give me an example please

Yes as long as .htaccess is enabled on the server, it should work fine. Please see chapter 5.1 in the book for www and no-www techniques.
Thanks Jeff I will take a look at this in the book
