    Hey everyone! I was just curious as to how many of you opted to using www as part of the url, or conversely if you didn't, and why?

    I personally went with the www purely because I liked the look of it, but I have no other reasons aside from that.

    You really have two choices to pick, http:// or https://

    I didn't conciously leave the www out of my url. Most people I know don't type the www anyway, so it doesn't really matter anyway so I left it as it was :')

    I redirect www to the domain without. I think it was a cute gimmick in the early web, basically meaning world wide web, but it's a little superfluous these days.

    YouTube uses it though. And if your choice is HTTPS or HTTP, as mentioned by @Empire, then it should definitely be HTTPS, some modern browser features won't work without it and HTTP/2 can really help in speeding things up.

    Oh no, they won't disable HTTP sites.

    But, they will make it as painful as possible to run a HTTP site with less functionality, a big ugly "Not Secure" label in the URL bar (getting switched on next month), and worse search rankings.

    There's no any difference between having www and no www. However, in the users' views, websites having www looks nicer than others. IMO. I personally didn't use www on my sites.
