    It must show HTTP at the start and that's the issue.
    WWW is not any issue for you and you must have to be comfortable with it.

    Are you using Chrome or Firefox? They autohide parts of urls.

    Make sure to add both versions, www and non-www to google webmaster tools to avoid duplicate content

    After that just redirect non-www to www version

    You should also be able to choose primary version somewhere in cPanel, I don't really know where by heart

    tried it from cpanel but got this error
    The system failed to add the redirect because of the following errors:
    Redirecting "" to "http://www.domain.com/" will cause a redirection loop because "http://domain.com/", which is located at "/home3/name/public_html/", is above "http://www.domain.com/", which is located at "/home3/name/public_html/" .

    Why would you add www to non-www redirection if you already set non-www to redirect to www?

    If you want previous redirection removed just delete lines added to .htaccess.
