World Wide Web) The common host name for a Web server. The "www-dot" prefix on Web addresses is widely used to provide a recognizable way of identifying a Web site. Computers read Web addresses (URLs) from right to left, so that the WWW is the last component of the address. WWW Is Optional Today, the WWW prefix is mostly optional. Web sites are typically configured to default to the Web server if only the domain name is used. Try it. Type the name of a Web site into your browser using the http:// prefix and no WWW and dot, and it should work just as well. See dub-dub-dub, World Wide Web, DNS and URL.
