When writing about your website, should you include the “http://” in your URL? Here’s a rule of thumb. For offline use, such as business cards and envelopes, drop the “http://” prefix. But for anything electronic, such as word processing documents or e-mail messages, always include the “http://” because in many applications it makes your link clickable.
