Without WWW

I have finally took some time off to redirect http://www.lesterchan.net/wordpress to https://lesterchan.net/wordpress [1] and update my links to reflect this change.

As for my links in my WordPress plugins, I will update it when I release updates for all of them after WordPress 2.3 is released (sometime in September 2007).

For all those that linked me, it would be good if you can change my url from http://www.lesterchan.net/wordpress to https://lesterchan.net/wordpress [1]. If you find it too troublesome to do so, you can just leave it as .htaccess will take care of it.

But most importantly, a big thank you for linking me.

Why is .www deprecated?

By default, all popular Web browsers assume the HTTP protocol. In doing so, the software prepends the ‘http://’ onto the requested URL and automatically connect to the HTTP server on port 80. Why then do many servers require their websites to communicate through the www subdomain? Mail servers do not require you to send emails to recipient@mail.domain.com. Likewise, web servers should allow access to their pages though the main domain unless a particular subdomain is required.

Succinctly, use of the www subdomain is redundant and time consuming to communicate. The internet, media, and society are all better off without it.
