    Hi there,

    I have developed a website Now as per the details shown in various forums and tutorials I have inserted this particular code to redirect to As per below:

    # Redirect www urls to non-www
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.prolicious\.in [NC]
    RewriteRule (.*)$1 [R=301,L]

    However, it isn’t working. On typing, the message I get is Webpage not available.

    I also saw in one of the support forums that sometimes this happens due to W3 Total cache Plugin. So, I deleted all the plugins and files related to this plugin, but the problem still persists. Could you please look into this and tell me what am I missing?

    Kindly let me know how to resolve this issue. What do I need to change.

    When I check that website/domain name it does not appear to be registered.  So the problem is the domain name itself.  Contact your web host and ask them for help with that.




    Thank you so much for such a prompt response. But, I don’t understand. works. only does not. So the domain is definitely registered.

    The domain is registered on Bigrock and hosted at Godaddy. I am sorry but I am not great with this, could you please tell me what further should I be inquiring for and with the Domain Registrar or Web Host?

    Hmm yeah looks like is having some problems today and is showing that your domain name is not registered: “ is not registered.”

    The problem looks like some sort of DNS problem with the www subdomain so this would still be something that your host should help you with.  Or if you are familiar with changing DNS settings then check the www subdomain in your host control panel.

    The server at can’t be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website’s name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.



    go to your domain file one option will be there for forwarding to www or non www you can select
    open you hosting page.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]


    HTTP Redirect Tool lists all redirects issued by a web server when fetching a URL.

    Have a look on redirect tool
