Although standardized now, I think back in the day, it might have been an option to have a domain accessible without the www. I remember helping someone reg a site where that was listed as a "special" feature. *shrug*

Apart from what F1Pilot said, this also depends on DNS settings and Web Server config. I think even though www.mwave.com and mwave.com is pointing to the same ip, the webserver is not configured to answer requests for mwave.com .

(Long story made very short. If interested in DNS, either this book DNS and Bind from Oreilly,
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/dns4/
or Ask Mr. DNS site http://www.acmebw.com/askmrdns/archive.php , is Highly recommended).

HTH.
Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
Enjoy such liberty. - Richard Lovelace
