    Add the 'www' prefix to my domain

    I have a site designed in .net and was wondering how to Automatically Add the "www" Prefix to my domain?

    I noticed certain websites have it (Apple.com, MySpace.com, Sitepoint.com). So if a user types in yourdomain.com or any subpages like yourdomain.com/exec-bios/ it would automatically add the 'www' to the prefix

    You can do this by adding a .htaccess file to your site's home directory(e.g. publice_html).

    Then you can force all requests to the non-www version of your url to go to the www version. Just add this code to the blank .htaccess file.

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.your_domain.com$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.your_domain.com/$1 [R=301]
    Make sure to change the above urls to your domains' url. There are probably lot's of references floating around google you can check out for this too.
