Paola,

The W3C has always used w3.org as its main domain name, as far as I 
know. w3c.org has existed as well as an alias. All W3C vocabularies and 
standards use w3.org URIs for the address of the documents, the 
identifers of components, entities, concepts they define, and the email 
addresses of its staff.

I don't think anything is changing in this regard, and very unlikely to 
change at all in the future because w3.org URIs are cool.
