Yep, you're right here. If there are multiple _computers_ with multiple
_ip-addresses_ involved. Just, to my unserstandig at least 98% of all
domain names registered are done so for websites, often running with
several hundrets other on the same machine. So, why do they tell their
servers only to react onto the subdomain www. ?

Anyway, it's one of the things we will never get rid of again.
