I'm wondering if a simple DNS server could offer, even a limited amount, of load balancing capability.

I have a couple of servers and I've been told that multiple IPAddresses can be associated with one domain.

Help would be very much appreciated!


Yes, you can provide very limited load balancing using a technique called round-robin DNS. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round_robin_DNS.
