When the 'web', the internet started, most machines, the forwarded facing "web server" was give the subdomin of www, so it would be, this is as compared to an mail server, or ftp server, akin to, or All of which are part of the domain. So now the question, should the site be just the domain, or include the www subdomain, and if so, are that the same site or two different sites?

So in fact, one could choose to point to one IP address, and to a different IP address, having two different "sites". Or one could choose to point both to the same web servers and site, such that they are different, but the same.
