Did You Know?: No www Needed in Your TypePad URL

It's a fairly common practice to go to every URL on the Internet by adding a www in front of it.  Did you know that with your TypePad domain that this isn't necessary?

When you register for a TypePad URL, you pick your own subdomain, like the everything.typepad.com that's used here.  Other examples include our featured blogs like thescenestar.typepad.com, riffraf.typepad.com, and intuitivecreativity.typepad.com. This replaces the www in the URL, so it's no longer necessary.

While you can put a www in front of your TypePad URL and it will still work, this can cause problems for password protected blogs.  Additionally, some third-party systems, including domain registrars and FeedBurner, might have issues if you use the www.

Don't forget that if you ever want to use your own domain, like www.stayatstovedad.com, it's as simple as setting up domain mapping.
