and websites starting just http://abc.com (without www) i see that
almost every blog sites dont have the prefix www.

what is the clarification?

Technically the "www" doesn't have any special meaning, it's just a
subdomain. However, most sites like being called with it prepended for
marketing purposes, because people associate "www" with something being
modern.

For most domains X, the domain names "X" and "www.X" point to the same
services, but that isn't mandatory. As the names are unrelated, despite
being part of the same domain X, you may treat them as completely
independent.

By the way, you are in the wrong group. Your question is not
security-related.
