Fewer Ws

Now that I’ve moved to wysz.com (from thewysz.com), I decided to trim my URLs even more by not using the www subdomain in my URLs. I usually prefer www on URLs because I’m used to seeing it, and I think we’ve been trained to use it to recognize URLs. However, since “wysz” starts with a W, I think the www prefix was actually hurting its readability. It looked like URLs were mistyped with four Ws.

Let me know if you see any broken redirects as a result of this change, and thanks to everyone on Twitter who convinced me to go through with it.

  1. Podcast link under subscribe is also to http://www.thewysz.com (that redirects though)

    I think you should also redirect wysz.com/blog to wysz.com/wyszdom and add slashes to your about, imagery, and video links. And while you’re at it, it might be good to redirect /photos and /images to /imagery/

  2. Thanks, guys. I’ve fixed the /blog redirect and will work on your other suggestions after work. Except for Reid’s “More Wysz” suggestion. I like to keep that a bit off the beaten path. 🙂
