    Setting a preferred domain on my Reseller account?

    Hello everyone,

     

     My name is Hans and this is my website niohost.com

    I was want my website to show the non www version but it doesn't seem like customer service understands what i want...

     

    What is a Preferred Domain?

    A preferred domain is the version (www or non-www) of your domain that you want to show in search results. A preferred domain is also the domain that you want your users to be redirected to whether they type in www or not.

    What is the SEO impact of setting a preferred domain?

    The fact that Google sees www.example.com and example.com as two separate websites is at the heart of preferred domains' SEO impact. Setting a preferred domain for your websites optimizes its appearance in search results, helps prevent duplicate content and consolidates link juice.

    if anyone has experience in this please help. i prefer "niohost.com" to show on search engines

    It is recommended to put the turnkey store on a subdomain and create your own custom storefront on the main domain for SEO.
