    Here is an example how to force no-www domain on Servepilot Digitalocean VPS servers with Nginx.

    Create /etc/nginx-sp/vhosts.d/techcat.d/0www_redirect.conf
    with code that will force all www pages 301 redirect to a naked no-www domain.
    Code:
    if ($host ~* www.techcat.ca$) {
        return 301 http://techcat.ca$request_uri;
    }
    restart nginx with the command
    Code:
    sudo service nginx-sp restart
    If you would like to force all no-www pages to www.
    Code:
    if ($host ~* techcat.ca$) {
        return 301 http://www.techcat.ca$request_uri;
    }

    Thank you that worked out very nicely :)

    Do you also know how to force https to all of that?
    Right now I'm using these rules in my htaccess
    Code:
    RewriteCond %{ENV:HTTPS} !on
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]
    It works but it's not an elegant solution.

    Do you know how to achieve this via conf-file?
    I tried for hours and didn't get anywhere.
