www or not www? - that's the question

Hi,

my site is accessible with or without www subdomain. But it seems like there are some issues with Koken when i try to access the site without the www. I often get empty pages then. This happens for the album and content pages.
Strange thing is... when i then call the same page WITH the www prefix everything works. And when i then switch back to the url without www it works there too???!

Also when i call the admin backend without www i get empty pages under the 'Site' menu. It keeps telling me there where no albums or the album was empty. I have to call the same admin page WITH the www prefix at least once in order to get it running without www.

Do you have any ideas?

Usually it is better to have 301 redirect from www to non-www or vice versa , than there will be only once version of url style /site
Main reason that without redirect google will consider your content as duplicate and penalize you for that in search ranking

thanks for the answer Alexey. I should have mantioned that I've already tested htaccess redirects from non www to www and that solved the problem. I just thought, however, it's an issue and should be solved. Don't you think?

I experience the same thing. might have to do with the caching or proxy servers?
Closing the browser and reopening it sometimes helps. I also noticed that when it is not working on my browser at work it seems to work on my phone browser.

Though this really seems to be a error in the script but can't quite get my finger on it.
