www. or non-www? What's better?

Last updated: 06 December 2023

You might have noticed. Traditionally, websites are sometimes referred to as "www.something.com". However, given that the "www." is only a so-called subdomain, this is essentially a preference rather than a requirement.

At Magic Pages, we support both "www" and non-"www" domains, so that you can use both, depending on your preference.

We generally lean towards non-www domains, because of their simplicity. They look cleaner and more straightforward, aligning with current web standards.

However, when setting up your custom domain in Magic Pages, we also ensure that the "www" subdomain is properly handled.

This is achieved through a so-called CNAME record, which maps the "www" subdomain to the original non-www domain. For example, you can reach Magic Pages both on www.magicpages.co, as well as magicpages.co.

So, whether to use "www" or not really comes down to your personal preference.
