How to redirect www requests to non-www URL

If you would like to redirect all the requests to the www version of an URL to the non-www version - for example to - you can do that by placing the following mod_rewrite rule in your .htaccess file:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.geekpedia\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]
The redirect code 301 means Moved Permanently so most search engines will pick this up and send visitors directly to the non-www version of your URL.
