How do ISP's and companies offer multiple domain names?  I have a network and I would like to use multiple machines for multiple purposes and register some domain names.  What is the best way to go about this?  Can I have www.domainA.com point to the same webserver as www.domainB.com?  Any pointers appreciated.

1) yes u can set multiply names to one IP:
   u'll need do add CNAME or just A records
2) or u can set multiply IP's to one network interface
      using aliasing, and then adding A records

If you are using Microsoft IIS, see:

I think the companies your talking about is using NIS or name internet service in by which they can point a certain domain name to the same internet protocol unlike cname by a unix or nt server user the same domain but different internet name such as
www.unc.edu.ph and proxy.unc.edu.ph same domain but different name...
