I wanted to understand a few international issues of URL's.
I know what http is for....
firstly i want to understand why there are alterations and sometimes necessary exlusions of www in a URL (an http url that is, not ftp etc...)
what is the difference in excluding it, or using something like www2 or something
Also - relative to being in the united states, what is the reasoning for using country endings like .us or .jp
in the us if i go to google.com or google.us i get the same thing.
if i go to google.jp i get google in japanese
obviously .country endings are necessarily to that country, however what is the difference in going to a .com in seperate countries.
does it relocate that country to the relavent .country version ofthe .com
for instance does .com in the us go to .us and .com in japan go to .jp?
how does this work on a practical user level, and also on the URL information sent to............that place where information is networked........
