Redirect all pages to non www except one page

I want to redirect all my internal pages(eg: to their non www version but I want my web hosting to redirect to it's www version(Example Domain)

I searched many articles on the internet but it could not work.

If set both rules then the internal pages get redirected fine but the homepage gets trapped in a loop.

I don't know how to code so please it's a request if you could write the code which I should paste in my .htaccess file

Currently I have set all pages to redirect to their non www versions(even homepage) with the below code:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.example\.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]
# BEGIN Sitepad
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . index.php [L]
# END Sitepad

Hey there! This wouldn't be directly related to the cPanel tools, but what about something like this? In this example, if the URI has /staging the redirect does not apply.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/staging/
RewriteRule ^(.+) - [PT]
RewriteRule (.*) /livesite/$1 [L]
You may need to mess around with that a bit to get the desired results, but something along those lines should get you started in the right direction.
