Can DNS have two HOST A records assign to one IP?

Hello,

Can DNS have two HOST A records assign to one IP and can someone explain the DNS process from a client PC.

Thanks,

For your first question, yes.

For your second, care to be more specific? DNS is an entire protocol and has *several* RFCs written that lay out what it is and how it works.

Yes, you can have two host records pointing to same IP address. Question is why would you want to do this, why not use alias? We had a server with multiple apps that got separated over different hosts and what we did was create a host record for the physical server and then use alias names for each application.
