What is WWW8?

I was doing a search for a business and it turns out their url begins with www8. What the hell is that? I thought it had to begin with the standard www.

What does this mean and how does someone go about getting that kind of domain?

Basically, WWW8 is a subdomain of a website.

Examples of subdomains are http://images.google.com/ and http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/.

They can be used as methods of sharing categories between a site without having to bother about folders. Im not sure, but i think it can also be a method of sharing bandwidth and storage across multiple servers.

An abbreviation of “World Wide Wait”? :slight_smile:

www (9 sylables)…the only acronym that takes longer to say than the phrase it represents…
