No "www"

Hi,

I have created a website (I am still struggling with this) and I have noticed that there is no "www" in my page's address.

I mean I have ht*tp://mydomain.c*om instead of ht*tp:/w*ww.mydomain.c*om

Can I change that?
Any options?

Thank you in advance.

Yeah, you can change this by using the .htaccess file as described in this lesson:http://www.affilorama.com/site-building/url-canonicalization
or you can use the redirect from your cpanel.
or if you are using wordpress look under general settings and you can change ht*p://domainname.c*m to
ht*p://www.domainname.com

All you need to do is change all references of your website to http://www.domain instead of http://domain and that should get things resolved?
