Second, we must set a redirection from whatever "username.domainname.com" link to "domainname.com". Thats achieved by talking to your hosting provider to setup such a redirect.

Third, according to your site link generation, modify the last line in .htaccess provided lately. In my case it was "index.php?user=1", which was transformed to 1.domainname.com.
