    I want some information about these words.

    When we start our computer and connect it to internet, we often write WWW before any website.

    Suppose I want to open Mpbse, I will type as w w w.m p b s

    So I want to know 'why do we use www when we write the address of a website'

    I want the detailed information about it.

    It is the short form world wide web and we use www but now in the advanced browsers with OS even we need not type www, it will take automatically the site name. So try with advanced technology.

    WWW is an abbreviation for "World Wide Web". In www, web means network and world wide refers to "pages/files/images shared on globally connected network" i.e. Internet.

    This meaning also explains why web sites and pages on internet are having www in the URL reference and why Intranet files/pages do not have "www" in the URL reference.

    You well said that www is the short form of world wide web. The definition of web and world wide is very excellent. I totally understand the full meaning of www.

    I thank you for the great information.
