How to make my domain address appear with "www"


Recommended Posts



I'm new here. Please direct me to the right thread if this is a duplicate thread, I have a new website. I am a newbie when it comes to setting up and using whmcs and control panel. I'm just starting to learn. I hope someone here can help me.


My website when typed on the url search won't have "www" but I have another website and my provider was webs.com when I typed the domain address even though I didn't typed "www" it will automatically have it. I'm not sure how they set it up like that since they don't have a control panel or whmcs but I want my new website like that (I don't want to use webs.com anymore as the domain name isn't transferable to other hosting)


Thanks in advance to those who will answer. I will really appreciate it.

it's very easy task, you can accomplish this through .htaccess, in your WHMCS add or open .htaccess file for editing, add the following commands in it:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]


also in "Admin Area > Setup > General Settings" make sure that "System URL" and "System SSL URL" in www. format too

this file should be located inside WHMCS main directory http://www.example.com/whmcs/.htaccess

so create new file and name it ".htaccess" and place the following commands inside it


RewriteEngine On

# Redirect Non-WWW To WWW
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]

# Announcements
RewriteRule ^announcements/([0-9]+)/[a-z0-9_-]+\.html$ ./announcements.php?id=$1 [L,NC]
RewriteRule ^announcements$ ./announcements.php [L,NC]

# Downloads
RewriteRule ^downloads/([0-9]+)/([^/]*)$ ./downloads.php?action=displaycat&catid=$1 [L,NC]
RewriteRule ^downloads$ ./downloads.php [L,NC]

# Knowledgebase
RewriteRule ^knowledgebase/([0-9]+)/[a-z0-9_-]+\.html$ ./knowledgebase.php?action=displayarticle&id=$1 [L,NC]
RewriteRule ^knowledgebase/([0-9]+)/([^/]*)$ ./knowledgebase.php?action=displaycat&catid=$1 [L,NC]
RewriteRule ^knowledgebase$ ./knowledgebase.php [L,NC]
