Re: i have hosting with url. after setting up wordpress the www is missing from my url in the brows

usually the Top Level Domain is irrelevant toward the compatibility of a properly configured wordpress; however, i have come across some lazy developers that call mis-configurations a feature. You have 3 options:

  • change all the occurrences in your database to have www in the TLD.
  • change the site domain in wp-admin->settings
  • add a permanent redirect in your .htaccess file

.htaccess

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]
