#27927: Multisite www gets treated as a subdomain
 Reporter:  Ipstenu       |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  General       |    Version:  3.9
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
  Focuses:  multisite     |
 To reproduce:

 1) Install WordPress on a site as http://example.com (NO WWW!)
 2) Activate Multisite as subdomains
 3) Visit www.example.com

 Instead of being redirected to example.com, you will end up at the signup
 page: example.com/wp-signup.php?new=www (or if you have a NOBLOGREDIRECT
 you go there).

 www is special and shouldn't be treated as it's own subdomain. While this
 can be handled with a simple .htaccess redirect (see below), this strikes
 me as something we should be catching.

         RewriteEngine On
         RewriteBase /
         RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.*)$ [NC]
         RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%1/$1 [R=301,L]
