- Allow users to reach the site’s homepage, even if they forget to enter the “www” prefix.
- Reduce the energy impact related to the consultation of the site.
Configure the server so that it manages addresses without www (routing).
On some of the pages checked:
- Remove the prefix “www” in the address of the page, within the URL bar of your browser;
- Check that you still have access to the website.
Warning: some browsers hide the www prefix by default. The test should therefore be done by adding http:// or https:// in front of the address while omitting the prefix, for example: https://opquast.com.
