Good starting point with references is here:

In general, if the owner of the website does not
give you link with "www" such shall not be used
and referred, especially if other link is simply

Don'y you see the link above for Wikipedia, there
is no www inside there, but "en" as in
"" so each website can have
unlimited number of subdomains be it "www" or

those servers serving over HTTP, but there is no
rule to it.
