I was asked a question from a friend if he should redirect
I answered him that it seems more intuitive to just make both work. So if you enter by
his-domain.com you get to
his-domain.com and if you enter
www.his-domain.com you get to
www.his-domain.com. This is what I do on my sites. I have an ServerAlias in my apache.conf file that says
ServerAlias my-domain.com *.my-domain.com
But to my surprise,most major sites seems to take the redirect approach. Which I can understand if the sites are using SSL. But if they are not, I don't.
So are there any objective reasons to choose one instead of the other?
More nuanced edit
It would be nice if you read my question before closing it. But from the reactions I get I guess the answer could be something like:
"Don't make both www.domain.com and domain.com work side by side. Nobody does that. Just redirect one to the other".
Even if none is willing to give a technical answer to my question I would hope someone could have answered at least that instead of closing as a duplicate and refering to different question (which to some degree was related)
