"What is the difference between what I am telling the DNS server and outgoing gateway router to do when I enter into my browser address box 'http://www.bsdcon.kwiki.org' and when I enter into my browser address box 'http://bsdcon.kwiki.org'?"
In this particular case, there is no difference. Both names point to the same IP address:
1-sec# nslookup www.bsdcon.kwiki.org Server: localhost Address: 127.0.0.1
Name: www.bsdcon.kwiki.org Address: 184.108.40.206
2-sec# nslookup bsdcon.kwiki.org Server: localhost Address: 127.0.0.1
Name: bsdcon.kwiki.org Address: 220.127.116.11
You see different sites for the different names because the server is using named virtual domains. In other words, the fact that your browser connects via one name or the other is the reason why you see different content as the result.
