Hi All

Just browsing a few minutes ago and found prefix wwp. instead of the usual www. Can anyone tell me what this is etc, etc ?

More can be found, regarding this topic here (http://wwp.uk.com/). Although, I don't think their web site is as informative as it could be.. :)

The link I have provided is for the UK service they offer, as the US product has not yet been launched.

It is a subdomain :)

When you have your own domain and setup a subdomain in your control panel, you can put the "wwp" (for whatever it's worth) infront of the "domain.com".

For example:

If I have the domain www.isms.info I can create a subdomain http://wwp.isms.info

Hope this helps.

if you have ever used/noticed in google, they have many subdomains setup.

For example:

Like posted above, depending on your server and DNS system it could be easy or difficult to set them up.

At the end of the day you can point Brittany.WebProWorld.com to a different IP Address then Catalyst.Webproworld.com or you can even point them to the say IP Address.

Thanks, it never occurred to me that we were looking at a sub domain because of the ww bit at the beginning.

The famous www is also - a subdomain.
Completely unnecessary but still used by majority of users.

WWP. sounds like another ill thought idea.

With all the newbies still getting onto the Internet and mis information with other TLD's, the last thing the Internet community needs is another form of confusion.

Also, if you go to their site and read some of the claims they make...litteral guarantees that your business will take off. As if a subdomain was all a web site needed to be sucessful.
