what's the difference between mycompany.com vs www.mycompany.com ?

Are these considered the same website? From what I understand (correct me if I am wrong), they are different hosts (different IP's?).

Depends on the set up really. They are the same site. People just choose to redirect www. to non-www urls. For example:



Google or other search engines however, may view them as separate sites and list the www and the non-www urls. You can check out a better explanation of why this is done here.
