Really the www is a hangover from the early days of the internet.

It's actually a subdomain of the main domain which is cliptheapex.com

It's not required and as search engines now penalise sites for having duplicate content, e.g.
http://cliptheapex.com/threads/the-site-url-has-changed.2318/ and http://www.cliptheapex.com/threads/the-site-url-has-changed.2318/ then now is a good time to ditch it.

Besides, it's cooler to say clip the apex dot com rather than double u double u double dot clip the apex dot com :D

good work :)
the pain has paid off.
Did it to my site a few weeks ago and the google page ranking has increased dramatically :D

Interesting..

But for some reason I can still use the www. subdomain.

Yes, it only works for the domain root.
Even the host can't get it to work for all other pages.

Still working on it.

I expect it's some weird server configuration.

TOTALLY lost again, Bro - as long as I can bring it up (as they say in common parlance) I will be happy.

Yes, just use the site as normal Jen, it will still work.

If you have any bookmarks though, just update them to change http://www to http:// - essentially remove the www.

The www issue should now be fully resolved.

Any URL prefixed with www should be redirected to the corresponding non-www URL.
