Why do some websites and servers require you to type 'www.' before the address. Some will go to the site and others will fail. Does it have something to do with DNS?

Depends on how the host provider works. If a domain name is setup as a reverse then typing just the domain (without the 'www.') will work. On the other hand, if it's not setup with a reverse then you need the 'www.'

Yes..

Yes matt is right.... Some of them require www (World Wide Web) to excess the host. But most of them to me don't.... My short cut is just for example cnn.com I type cnn in the address window and then just push Shift + Enter and it will automatically type the www and .com for you... Works great.. :cool:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
