http:// VS http://www


Hello,

I have a domain name: myname.net (for example)
I am able to access it like this: http://myname.homeip.net but cannot access it this way http://www.myname.homeip.net

Why?
Thanks

because the "myname" in myname.homeip.net is a subdomain.

"myname" takes the place of "www", basically.
