    QUESTION:: Is there any difference between an web address with "www" and without one?

    example:

    www(.)mydomain.com
    and
    mydomain.com


    ANSWER::: there is no difference unless you specify this in your DNS

    ie www can have an A record which points to a different IP address.

    You can think of the www as being a type of alias for the domain name or otherwise where the web portion of the domain name lives.
    Never argue with an idiot; First he takes you down to his level and then he beats you with experience.

    whats the point

    Could you tell me what are trying to do?

    Only thing that comes to mind is one website for the domain and a different site for the www.whatever.com


    But wtf would you want to even bother doing that, let alone posting about it and asking?

    Just direct the www.domain to the domain and have one site. Why make a job harder?

    Anyway most people are used to typing www.
    So there isnt much point

    I guess some people just have way too much free time rofl
