How about this way, Joseph (speaking for myself and my domain, of

The domain is  I've got public services, and private
machine names.  For example, www, mail, pop, etc., have published
internet-accessible IP#s, while machine names, such as jesse, elijah,
joshua, etc., have private IP#s.  It seems very convenient to me to just
