3.5. Can a computer have multiple domain names?
Yes. It is common for a site to have multiple names that are assigned to the
same IP address. For instance, the following names
could all point to a single computer with one IP address.
It would be very unusual for different top level domains to point to a single
host, however. I think it more likely that big-bug.com_ could point to
the same address as ftp.big-bug.com, stink.big-bug.com,_ and
such. It's incredibly unlikely that a host would show up in both .com and .org,
that's for sure! --DT
