How to redirect www requests to non-www URL

illustration that abstractly represents a website URL redirection.

If you would like to redirect all the requests to the www version of an URL to the non-www version – for example to – you can do that by placing the following mod_rewrite rule in your .htaccess file:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

The redirect code 301 means Moved Permanently so most search engines will pick this up and send visitors directly to the non-www version of your URL.
