When you register a domain name they just want the addresses of the DNS 
servers.  Many domains can make use of the same server.  Then on that 
server you just have,,, 
etc. all resolve to the same IP address.  Then the web browser and 
server can sort out what site was actually requested when it comes 
across on that IP address.
