Actually I just realised what I said :), its one to many, because
a.com
b.com
c.com
can all point to 1.2.3.4

Anyways to answer your question, buy the .com names, make sure you can alter the Primary Name Server from the host you buy it from and use your static IP as this name server.
This takes about 24-48 hours to change.

IP address can have only one but address you can have as many as you want. Just have the DNS point to the IP with the name of the site thats all. Need to find out whose hosting the Name thou....

Unfortunetely, i don't understand.  I'm hosting my site.  I have 1 static ip address from my ISP.  I have an IIS5 server.  How would i host multiple sites off of that one ip address.  You may have to dumb down the answer for me, i'm new in the WEB page hosting area. Thanks

Think of it this way
Say you have an ip address of 1.2.3.4
the dns would convert that to something more english for example www.domain.com
This relationship is one to one

okay so then how would i do this

1.2.3.4 is mydomain.com
and 1.2.3.4 is mydomain2.com

so 2 domain names 1 ip address and the dns server figures this out?
