well... I am not the first person to ask this, I am sure... but I didnt want to post in some old thread...
so, if I have a static IP address and a webserver running (2003), I know I can run more than one website, but do all of my sites need to be subdomains or can I have different FQDN's on one host?
its likely a good policy not to run more than one domain on a machine, so, in that event, I have 3 servers for this; 2003, 2000 and a linux slackware host... just in case, but do I need them to do this?
I am kinda thinking this is one of those DNS forward lookup things to get it setup.. but unsure atm....
You should be able to set up your server to work with multiple FQDNs; in Apache you can use virtual hosts and I presume there is similar functionality in IIS. Note that this requires your users to have a HTTP/1.1 compliant browser (the vast majority do) since HTTP/1.0 doesn't support virtual hosting.
