strange web address prefix

I've come across something strange, a web address starting with wwp instead of the usual www.
What is the significance of that and are there more prefixes that are rarely seen?
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

I suspect that WWP is just a subdomain, as is WWW really.
All seems a bit odd to me there is not much information here http://wwp.uk.com/

No significance whatsoever.
Look upwards - you'll see that this site starts with "community" rather than the usual www.
www is just a subdomain which is commonly used, but not exclusively - it has no significance other than its frequency of appearance.

Thanks, Smiley but could infrequency be a more apposite word?  Grin
