First, congratulations on having an all alpha, no numeric four
character .com 2nd level domain. Closes thing I have is a3b3.com, but
that's got numbers.

Not at all. You just use different IP addresses. One or both is an
alias of the server's IP address. For instance, my desktop computer is, but the unbound server on that same desktop uses the alias
