The www version is already a sub domain. It is purely a matter of custom and practice that hits on the www subdomain and hits on the domain itself go to the same location. topr8 msg:4550132 2:34 pm on Mar 1, 2013 (gmt 0)
>>www.cool.example.com [wrong] not true, many sites use www.example.example.com and in any case there is no correct way to do it, as piatkow has mentioned it is convention that example.com resolves to the subdomain www.example.com however this is not a rule and it is not always the case.
