Google indexing: https, ww., w., www.

We recently launched a new site and find it weird that Google is indexing: https., www., w., ww., http., and all other variations.

I used the site:domain.com to see this.

Could it be the site is being spidered the first time, or there are canonical issues?

Thank you

If you hadn't intentionally set up w. and ww. then that's an issue. Check your domains DNS records and web server setup so that requests aren't served for those.

Is your DNS configured to resolve *.example.com to your web server's IP address? Is your web server configured to responded to all queries, regardless of the domain name?

No matter what the underlying issue is, you should be able to make it go away by adding a domain-name-canonicalization redirect: if the request isn't for http://www.example.com it isn't allowed in the door. Exact wording will depend on which type of server you've got.
