I guess you can post in the www prefix thread, or start a new topic in the Apache mod rewrite forum if it's only a technical matter (you already now what you want seo wise).

I hope you understand I'm only trying to keep thing a clear as possible for everybody here, which of course goes along with a bit of cooperation with our dear community.

Anyway, while we're at, here is how you should proceed :

Add this in your .htaccess, right after the rewritebase line :
Code: Select all
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$1 [QSA,L,R=301]

And just replace example\.com with the domain you want to use in the end.

All other domain leading in the same folder on the server will be redirected, anything but will be redirected, meaning as well, which the dupe almost everybody has to deal with, the www prefix one.

If you read the www prefix thread a bit, you'll see that it's possible that this syntax will not exactly be the one working on your server, you may need to get rid of the trailing $ at the end of the RewriteCond for example, but that's how we redirect all at once easily.

Yes, I do have the www prefix "fix" already functioning for my site (great info on this site to set that up :D ). I was trying to figure out how to do this for a second domain. Thanks for your help and I do understand your wanting to keep the place organized!
