Re: Question regarding domain names
- Hi Seth,
Interesting information you have shared here. However, I think that
wasn't the original inquiry. As far as I understand it, the point was
about linking two domains to the same host.
The answer again is `yes' in most cases. You can even link a domain to
a personal server, blog, etc.. The only thing you need to do is to
check with the server administrators if they offer it or not as some
may limit the number of domains, but that would be rare..
