Question

Please help me with IP Canonicalization and WWW Problem

Hello guys, I just made a ghost blog with my domain today using Digitalocean. When I cheched to see my SEO status on Woorank its show that I have a problem with “IP Canonicalization”.

According to them: “Be careful, your server IP is not forwarding to your website’s domain name. Search engines like Google™ are now able to index your website with its IP instead of its domain name. This will result in duplicate content”

Plus I also want to do the WWW Resolve because my website without www doesn’t redirect to www (or the opposite). It is duplicate content!

I’m not sure if there is a way to fix this issue. One thing I’m sure of is that I set up the DNS correct on Namecheap. Please help. Thanks
