Reverse IP and webhosts
(WebDesign) Keywords: web, hosting, yahoo
Hi, I have a technical question about webhosts and servers. Let me know if I should post my question in another community.
I am using Yahoo webhosting. I did a whois search of my domain name using www.whois.sc. Whois.sc reports that the revese IP address Web server hosts 11,000 websites. Does this mean that 11,000 share the same IP address? Does Yahoo's DNS and network uses some kind of network address translator (NAT) to route packets to the proper web server and website?
The revers DNS of the IP address points to a Yahoo.com address, not my domain. Anyway, I am just wondering. It's no big deal.
I need to read the help files about access logs. Later everyone.
