Many my friends at some point asked me ways to force either the www or non-www version of their site to display in their visitor's browser. For example we always use www.example.com or simply example.com display in our web browsers. There is a common thought that forcing one format is better for search engine optimization. I want to know there are some ways to perform this action in your .htaccess in the cPanel for my primary domains. Any guides?

in your .htaccess file

#Force www.
Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]
