Do you understand the concept of a sub-domain? Sub-Domain

Well, www is a sub-domain of url.com . It is a common thing to have them point at the same thing so that people don't have to type in the www part. It is not required, but a lot of sites do this.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
