which is better default http:// domain or http://www.domain
Or does it not matter
does not matter. just make sure you point your backlinks to the right one or make sure you do a 301 redirect from one to the other so all your backlinks count whether they go to the www or not.
Correct it does not matter as angelas111 mentiond make sure your www or non-www page is directing to the other.
In Google webmaster tool you can specify if you are using a www or non-www
Personally I don't use a www in my URL just to cut down on the length of the URL
don't use the www. it just dilutes your keywords.
Is it possible to do a 301 redirect without using Google webmaster tools - can I 301 redirect through hostgator?
Yes of course. GWT is not a real 301 since it is not on your server. Look up rediects.
Doesn't matter what you use just redirect another one using 301... If you don't redirect it will create cannonical issue...
Separate names with a comma.
