Redirecting from non-www to www domain (Canonical Redirect)

Creating a wildcard canonical redirect which redirects any request that doesn't have the www to the www (useful for Search Engine Optimisation) can be easily achieved in your cPanel.


The first step is to log into your cPanel account. If you are unsure on how to do this, please view the following help article - 'How to log into cPanel'.

This process will perform a wildcard 301 from non www to www. Search Engines will automatically pick this up next time it crawls your site and update automatically, so no need to submit your site again.
