301 or 302 for www/non-www in BigCommerce

BigCommerce redirects a non www. domain such as partybagkids.co.uk to the www version (www.partybagkids.co.uk) however this is done via a 302 (tempoary redirect).

According to google a 301 (perminent redirect) is what is needed.

To do this CloudFlare again came the rescue.

Using cloudflare, was able to set up 2 DNS records (www & @) to point at BigCommerce and our hosting respectively.

Then it was a matter of setting up a 301 on the hosting using apache.

Job Done.
