I have just joined WebFaction feeling very happy about it!

My intention is to use a naked url for my website.

However, I find certain documents claiming -among other things- that using www can make the life of the hosting company easier.

Of course, others, get very hot when naked...

According to your experience, do you find it more difficult to manage a naked url for a scaled web site?

Welcome to WebFaction!

I'm glad you are enjoying your time here with us.

While all that information is certainly interesting, we take no side in regards to how customers decide to market their domain online. We manage thousands upon thousands of DNS records and using WWW or not wont really cause any problems for us, so it's really up to you.

If you would like to employ a redirect, you can look at the instructions to do that here:

Hope this helps.
