    Completely out the blue, my wordpress site has done something rather strange. I cant reach my site typing world wide web. and then the url...yet when i miss the world wide web out, it reaches the site just fine.( i cant post url's yet so when i say world wide web, im referring to 3 w's

    Obviously, whilst it does this, i cant access my wp-admin, and its beginning to piss me off truth be told...

    Im hosted with hostgator, and spent ann hour with the live chat techie, who told me at first it was a small error and he'd fixed it, then it was the .htaccesss file and he would rectify it, it still didnt work....then he said it was the index.php file, he said he would fix it, it didnt work...

    Finally he said that from now i must re-direct my world wide web to my site without the www in the address bar...WTF??

    I wasnt even touching the website when this happened, and they dont have a fu**ing clue over there...any you guys have any ideas??

    I hope i have put this in proper place, apologies to mods if i havent

    All help greatly appreciated!!

    No, I meant when trying to access your WordPress admin control panel. Try to replce the www. you're using with http:// :banana:

    Paste your htaccess file here, if you cannot see it in FTP then go to CPanel, file manager and grab it.
