Yes, you can use lp.SOMEDOMAIN.com" as destination URL having "www.SOMEDOMAIN.com" as display URL. It is acceptable.

Re: Display/Destination URL: Is this ok?
We require that your Display URL be on the same "site" as your Final URL. Usually "site" means domain, e.g. SOMEDOMAIN.com, so the prefixes that come before SOMEDOMAIN don't have to match. There are a few exceptions for sites that host user content; for example myblog.blogspot.com and yourblog.blogspot.com are treated as different sites and would cause a mismatch if one were used as the Display URL and the other as the Final URL.
Note that I said "Final URL" rather than Destination URL. These aren't necessarily the same, because a Destination URL can redirect the user to another URL. (Some advertisers use this for click tracking rather than using Analytics.) What matters is that the site the user ends up on after going to the Destination URL and following all the redirects is the same as the Display URL's site.
