Subject Re: [users@httpd] What defines www2?

Hiya

Normally www2 is used where there is more than one server involved with a
website. An example would be where one server is for normal access and
another machine on a different IP is used for secure access.

It doesn't signify anything in particular and is just another subdomain, but
another example is the way I use it - my www (www.zoeballz.tv) is a rented
server and is my "main" server. www2 is actually on a machine in my office
where I can directly edit a live webpage if necessary, or wish to give
someone a download without having to mess about uploading it (in other words
I can just copy file into web area by local net).

I hope this helps.

Zoe
