If I happen to know (or even suspect) that XYZ corporation has a domain name
of and I want to learn more about them, one of the first things I'll
try is

If that fails, I'll go to infoseek or yahoo to try and find them. There's
nothing magic about the www, but at least having a CNAME record for
www.your.domain pointing to your server considerably improves the chances
that people will be able to find you (easily).
