Redirecting a www address to a non-www address or vice versa is important for SEO. Heres how to set it up on Nginx and Apache in the most efficient way.


# Nginx - Redirect www to non-www
server {
  server_name www.solidfoundationwebdev.com;
  return 301 $scheme://solidfoundationwebdev.com$request_uri;
}

# Apache - Redirect www to non-www
<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1>
  ServerName www.solidfoundationwebdev.com
  <IfModule mod_alias.c>
    Redirect permanent / http://solidfoundationwebdev.com/
  </IfModule>
</VirtualHost>

If you need to do non-www to www then just change the above code to suit the need.
