    Re: No 'www.'? (IE6)

    Jefferson:

    I'm sorry if I'm slow...

    I register a domain (http://www.myco.com), then, with 1and1, I can purchase subdomins (http://sub1.myc.com, yes? Or is it http://www.sub1.myco.com?).

    But the "original purchase" will end up "www.myco.com", yes? No? Then, purchase #2 will end up what, www.sub1.myco.com? THAT (the subdomain) I've seen as just http://sub1.myco.com.

    But still, the CORE domain hasn't mutated to http://myco.com. THAT'S the part I'm missing here.

    By whom and where was or can THAT determination be made?

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Dave:

    Geez, that one blew right by me. I don't remember any kind of choice or stipulation to use 'www', but it's there.

    Or maybe I've just got this whole thing backwards: that the "NO 'www' is default, but using 'www' is still recognized", as opposed to what I had thought previously, that "use of 'www' is default but going without the 'www' in an address is recognized.

    And either way, it wouldn't really seem to matter, if in fact either way is going to be able to get you there...

    It's the other way around.

    You bought a domain name, myco.com, that is what you paid for.

    Everything else to the left of myco.com is up to you. Those are your subdomains. The entire string (www.myco.com or yippee.myco.com) is a host name, because it is associated with a computer, a host, out in Internet land.

    All the ways that myco.com accepts traffic, from web to email to whatever, is up to you.

    And depending on your toolset, it can be completely free.

    Jefferson:

    So then right now, doing nothing, I can tell people my address is myco.com... and if the put (or not) the 'www' is up to them.

    Yes? If so, that's neat. makes me feel a bit slow on the uptake, but that OK, long as I get where I'm heading...

    Re: No 'www.'? (IE6)

    Chuck the answer is yes, I have just typed in the url in your control panel without the www and it works a treat, it even prefixed http:// for me... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
