Greetings team Web Hosting Hub!

I would like domain to redirected from www to http//: / in order to avoid duplicity SITE for better indexing in search engines.
I tried to change it through the section "Redirects", which, in turn, reports:
"You cannot redirect" "to" "as this will cause a redirection loop because" / home / username / public_html / "is at the same place as" / home / username / public_html / ."

How nevertheless do it?
In advance I thank you for the help me.

Yours faithfully, Vsevolod M.

Hello Vsevolod,

Thank you for your question. You can force all sites to load with or without the "www," I recommend following our guide here, as it explains how to code your .htaccess file.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Hello Vsevolod,

After updating your .htaccess file, you may have to clear your browser cache, which may be affecting your results.

Also, other rules in the .htaccess file may be interfering with this rule. Have you tried moving the rule, so it is next to other "Rewrite rules" ?

We are happy to help, but can you provide a link to the domain, so we can troubleshoot more effectively?

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

Hello Vsevolod,

I went and tested the domain name - it's changing the URL to the non-WWW version as per the request. If I type, it changes to "".

Please make sure to clear your browser cache. It should be working with no problems. I added the lines to your .htaccess file - the one you had active on your account was blank.

Please let us know if you continue to require any further assistance.
