www.gemal.dk is gone

I never like using www.gemal.dk. I always used gemal.dk. So now I've added an Apache rewrite rule to my site so that www is removed from the location. Fx if you go to http://www.gemal.dk/mozilla/blogupdates.html you will land at http://gemal.dk/mozilla/blogupdates.html.

Could you explain the the rewriting rules you add?

Could you share the Apache rewrite rule with us so we can easily implement one for our own sites ?

I suppose it's something like:

ServerName www.gemal.dk
RedirectPermanent / http://gemal.dk/

One might add a ServerAlias for other domains if necessary.

Well, so much for tags :)

[VirtualHost *]
ServerName www.gemal.dk
RedirectPermanent / http://gemal.dk/

Change [ ] with tags.

Though, this isn't exactly a rewrite-rule.

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

Gemal, don't work here. :-(

I use this (http://no-www.org/faq.php#how_class_b) rule and works fine.

Have you noticed what happens to the "Up" option in Mozilla's Link Toolbar when using no-www standard? It becomes http://dk/ by default.
