I was doing a search for a business and it turns out their url begins with www8. What the hell is that? I thought it had to begin with the standard www.
What does this mean and how does someone go about getting that kind of domain?
Basically, WWW8 is a subdomain of a website.
Examples of subdomains are http://images.google.com/ and http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/.
They can be used as methods of sharing categories between a site without having to bother about folders. Im not sure, but i think it can also be a method of sharing bandwidth and storage across multiple servers.
An abbreviation of "World Wide Wait"?
www (9 sylables)..the only acronym that takes longer to say than the phrase it represents..
