Hi.
I would like to know the logical difference between
1) http://www.domain.com
And
2) http://domain.com

Why search engines did not prefer ?
which one is the best ?
How we can use 301 Redirect for this issue?

please provide me in details.

Thanks
Waiting for response !

www is a subdomain of domain.com and if you are using Apache on Linux you can easily do that by adding few lines in your .htaccess file

Check out Search Engine Optimization FAQ's and see the question

Why does my website have a higher PR with the 'www' then without it?

Where I have the code for both. Going from www to non www and vice versa

I think,http stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol its a protocol and www is a subdomain and stands for world wide web. www is not a protocol.
