how is latency affected when multiple domains are using one single static IP address ? The scenario is in shared web-hosting
By latency meaning the DNS lookup the client has to do. As far as I understand it, the browser would hit the root servers to try to figure out the IP Address and it belongs where and then when it comes to the correct server, it probably looks up some sort of table to determine which site names much and show that site as such via browser to the user.
Is my understanding correct or backwards or what ?
