I know I’m taking this subject farther than it has to be, and it’s non-part15 related, but this occurence has reminded me of something I use to experience a long time ago when I used to build a lot of websites, and right now, for the time being, this provides a good example, and it’s kind of interesting:
If you type radio4all.net or http://radio4all.net in your address bar (or click a link structured as such) either will both go to the ‘Recordist Group’ webpage.
If you type www.radio4all.net or http://www.radio4all.net in your address bar (or click a link structured as such) either will go to the ‘a-infos Radio Project’ webpage.
This demonstrates that distinction between the internet and the world wide web.. The internet is the actual domain.
The world wide web (www) is a subdomain, same as are other protocols like for example smpt is with email, etc..
So what? You don’t care?.. Yeah, me either really, as long as it works. Nevertheless, it is interesting.
Within another 24 hours or so after all servers are updated all four of the above links will point to the same webpage, and this presentation of example will no longer work.. because the examples provided in this post is as it were also a subdomain of the internet… sorta kinda.
