They are usually functionally no different.

Using "www" is an old internet fashion. Many sites still use it. But some choose to drop it for the sake of concision.

This is personal preference though. There is no strong opinion that makes one better than the other. I personally prefer keeping the main site with www instead of bare domain. That way if I have sub-domains like blog, forum, or whatnot, they all stay at the same level. That said, I would keep www.example.com but not www.blog.example.com. That means I will redirect example.com to www.example.com and www.blog.example.com to blog.example.com.

thanks for suggestion @ibnesayeed & @Jake Bunce one more thing about the recaptcha, is it build in? we dont have to insert private and public keys?
I guess recaptcha works out of the box. But I prefer custom question answer. Especially in my forum (which is not in English) I can keep the question simple and do not expect a bot to find out an answer. This has worked great in our board so far. :)
