subj. Looks like we need to tie www.dgg.gg and maybe other most used addresses with additional www. at begining to relevant IP's.

While dgg.gg is printed much easier whan ddg.gg, and still resolvings just fine if there is no www at the begining. If somebody can found statistics about usage of thouse names it would be nice because this shows how wide this problem is.
I catch it once a week, when I just started my computer, launch ff, while connection to internet is still establishing, and print dgg.gg as lightning and receive address switching to www.dgg.gg and impossibility to connect without editing address bar.

Hi, both ddg.gg and dgg.gg are working as redirect to duckduckgo.
Thanks for letting us know www.dgg.gg is not redirecting properly, will be fixed shortly.

the confusing part to me is: if you are using dgg.gg or ddg.gg as a shorter way to type duckduckgo.com why would you want to intentionally add 4 more keystrokes by typing www. ? now what am i missing
