    Use a 301 redirect and only allow users and search crawlers to follow one specific page. Search crawlers thinks you have two websites if you have not implemented 301 redirect for www or without www versions of your website.
    Implementation of 301 redirect can be different on different CMS, i.e. magento, wordpress, opencart or custom CMS so you can take help from a coder / web developer and after proper implementation of 301 redirect use a canonical URL tag with your preferred URL so that visitors and crawlers better understand about the preferred version of your website/pages.
