Uhm... one relates to the domain as a whole, while the other only applies to the individual page? Seems pretty obvious, unless I'm missing something.

Page Authority calculates the probability of a single page to rank well, in spite of its content. The higher the Page Authority, the greater the possibility for that individual page to rank well in search results. Domain Authority is the number of domains which link to different pages of the website. It is the measure of the power of a domain name.

Domain Authority is a overall value to particular website and page authority is the value of particular page, Page authority can vary page to page of particular website but domain authority remain same.

Domain vs Page authority: http://moz.com/learn/seo/domain-authority (includes a bit on how to influence/grow domain authority, and page authority would be focusing your SEO efforts on one page as opposed to the whole website)

Also Karl has a great response here: http://moz.com/community/q/what-s-mo...main-authority

As for www or not. Choose and stick with one, its important in terms of SEO link building to have consistency when you are building links to your pages. So either http://domain.com or http://www.domain.com is fine but choose one.

Also do a 301 permanent redirect to the preferred choice. Without this you might run in to these issues.

Hope this helps

Domain Authority refers to the rank of your complete website. DA rank ranges from 0-100.

Whereas, Page Authority refers to the ranking of the individual page against domain. Even the Page authority of the website range from 0-100.

As we know Google stopped updating it's page rank toolbar, so know DA rank is the indicator of how qualitative and trust worthy the website is.

Thumbs up Domain Authority Vs Page Authority - Tools and Importance

Domain Authority -

Domain authority is a measure of the power of a domain name and is one of many search engine ranking factors. Domain authority is based on three factors: Age, Popularity, and Size.

Page Authority -

Page Authority is a score (on a 100-point scale) developed by Moz that predicts how well a specific page will rank on search engines. It is based off data from the Mozscape web index and includes link counts, MozRank, MozTrust, and dozens of other factors.

Tool to check Domain/ Page Authority: "MOZ"
SEO gurus Moz can be credited with the metric known as DA or domain authority.

Domain and Page Authority - SEO POINT OF VIEW
Domain/ Page Authority can be a good indicator to check the value or worthiness of the website... this is also important to get back links from high Domain/ Page Authority website...

Still there is a catch.... you can not rely only on this indicator as new website will have low authority score that doesn't mean those sites are not good. so final decision would be your eye ball to quality a site as a good site of bad one.

This is a very good indicator to be used for competitor research or to check whether you have a high or low competition.
