    Ok we have decided to go with no www.

    http://tyrspaladium.com

    or just

    tyrspaladium.com

    However how exactly do we make this change on our server?

    Can anyone describe the benefits and cons of each? Im still not 100% sold on which way to go.

    What are the cons to do nothing, and keep both?

    Preference really, and consistency I'd say.

    @Steve may be able to direct you in the right way, requires some re-writes I believe in the .htaccess file.

    Have you thought about getting an SSL Certificate as well? A nice green padlock! :D Looks reputable and its more secure.

    I think it has some SEO benefits as well but I'm not sure, I always setup https on my sites now, most people recommend you do.

    I don't know if you're using a VPS but if you are it's pretty easy to setup LetsEncrypt.

    LetsEncrypt is free though, it's pretty much no trouble to setup if you setup a cron job to renew it automatically.

    @Russ What does PE use?

    I'm using AutoSSL.
    It cost nothing and don't have to install anything.

    Let's Encrypt

    Just recently switched because the other cert was expiring.
