Two WWW has meaning or areas related in a same concept: Its first meaning consists of being an acronym that comes from the concept World Wide Web, also known like the spiderweb, network or enmeshes world-wide. Basically it consists of mass media where it is had documents of hypertext (that is which connections to other sites are included documents) with texts, images, videos, graphs or other objects. In order to accede to these documents or pages Web, it is required of a navigator, who is not more than a software or program able to process of graphical or visible way the data that he obtains from the Internet.
In other articles already we have spoken in extenso on the Internet, its origins and their evolution, reason why we will pass immediately the other great connotation that has east acronym.
The meant second or area of application of WWW this abbreviation like an area code, aggregate or like custom in the beginning of direction or URL of a site in Internet are the use. For example in the page that visits at the moment, My Answers, if you pay attention to its direction this is written like “www.misrespuestas.com”. In another cases, you will occur to account of that there are sites that do not use this area code in their direction, and even are some have other different ones; for example in the section of the community of this site, the direction is written like “tuspreguntas.misrespuestas.com”, that is without using the www, and instead of that one a word is used to identify the section of the site.
The truth is that the use of WWW in the directions of the sites is not a standard nor an obligation, but due to the custom to associate this term to the sites or pages Web, is that it is continued using in the majority of the cases to identify the directions or URLs in the Internet. When it is not used, then it is common to use this space in particular to give reference to a section of a site.
Another reason for the generalization for the use for WWW in the dominion names, is that the servants automatically assign generally it to the direction; that is to say, the servants recognize the direction generally adds or not the area code in the beginning to him – that is he is in technical terms almost the same (almost because in many cases the proprietors of sites modify these options so that a version of the site is only clear, with or without the area code, not to generate confusion between the users).
The name with which it is known the abbreviations used before the dominion or appoints official of the site, is the one of “dominion of third level” or subdominion. In any case the usual thing is to use the term subdominion when an area code different from the classic WWW is used already.
