QWERTY trouble

Another source of spelling errors -- keyboard layouts.

Because "q" is next to "w", shaq.abc.com becomes www.shaw.abc.com.

Why is the misspelled URL popular only with a "www"? My hypothesis is that someone who types the "www" first is significantly more likely -- due to inertia -- to type a "w" instead of a "q" in "shaq."
