  2. Howdy, I’m new to blogging and internet sites in general and was curious about how you got the “www” included in your web address name? I see your domain, “https://celebreaty4recipes.wordpress.com/2010/12/21/whipping-cream-pound-cake-with-glaze/” has the www and my web address looks like, “http://mydomain.com”. Do you know the best way I can change this? I’m using WordPress.

    Thank you very much
