    This might sound silly for many, but still would like to ask for some assistance.

    When you are trying to buy a domain name, why can’t I request the www while trying to request for this domain.

    E.g if I put www.domain .com, it only displays the root domain.

    My question is, do you first need to but the root domain then ask for a subdomain www.

    Or is it that, you buy the root domain and point the www to root (resolve to www.domain.com)

    Reminds me of the days when I was a complete newbie myself and then I found BHW and the rest, as they say, is history! :)
