No-www Class B

Thursday, March 10th, 2005 at 9:45 pm

Ever since I set up this site I have never prepended the domain name with ‘www’ when linking to it or telling people. Fortunately Google has indexed my pages as I want and most people who I have told haven’t added it in. However there have been a couple of people who insisted on adding the ‘www’ so I have had on my list for quite some time the idea of adding in a rewrite rule to redirect these misguided souls to the correct URL.

One other idea on my very long list is to improve the URLs of my blog by moving away from the current 12 digit identifier (it is the date and time but…) in the url for an entry to something more transparent with maybe a better delimited date and/ or the title of the entry. It was while I was researching what URL styles other blogs use that I came across a link to no-www.org which conveniently includes a sample rewrite rule…

Thus this site now validates at the Class B no-www compliance level.
