RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^.*www.*$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomain.com [R=301]

A video on creating redirects on cPanel can be found here. Note that some applications like wordpress will use redirects already in your .htaccess file to function. Because of this, you may need to edit your .htaccess file and move the redirects cPanel creates above the ones already in your .htaccess file.
