There's absolutely no correspondence between domains and subnets. Any name
in any domain can point to any address on any subnet. Multiple domains can
point to addresses in the same subnet. This about web hosting services:
they obviously have different customers' www.<something>.com addresses all
pointing to addresses on their network, right? If this couldn't be done,
how could web farms exist?
