They are the same domain?

There is duplicate content on http://www.flairwindows.com and http://flairwindows.com. This is bad, as technically they are classed as two different websites. Search engines may lower a website's rank if they find the same content on two different URLs. Close recommendations

  • Choose one domain that you would like to use and then set a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect to forward users who visit the other.

Nancy, how do I get it to resolve to just the www. one? I don't see a way of doing that on my server and unsure what to type in to google to search for a how to.

If you have a Linux/Apache web server, you can do it with your site's .htaccess file.  Or by logging-in to your server's C-Panel.

B***s**t. Don't worry.

"www.domain.com" is the same as "domain.com" and search engines know that.

However, the homepage loads very slowly, which I find not very user-friendly. Nibbler says and gives green color for "This website was served with GZIP encoding. This is very good because it reduces the loading time of a web page."

But when you visit the website for the first time it takes around on a smartphone around 35 seconds for the content to appear. I almost thought the website is broken.

I disagree with Fenja.  www yourdomain.com is NOT the same as yourdomain.com.   They are actually different.

Go to Google.com and  type site:www.yourdomain.com in the search bar.  Hit Enter.  If you don't see many results, try it without the www prefix.

Ideally, your server should resolve to one URL or the other.

I think you may be right as in analytics I have entries for ./ and also ./index.html - or is that something totally different

Thanks Nancy, I finally got round to doing this. I accesses the htaccess via Filezilla and a very nice man from LCN hosting gave me the code!
