Notes: It is not uncommon for Web sites to be duplicated, or mirrored, on multiple physical host machines (e.g., for load balancing purposes). Typically, it is immaterial to the client (or user) which host machine is used to access the Web site.In this case, it may be useful to consider this collection of "physical" Web sites, located at multiple host machines, as one "logical" Web site.This is possible in the case where a single domain name is mapped to each of the host machines; the logical Web site can then be identified using the unique domain name.If there is no unique domain name that can be applied to the collection of duplicate sites, we consider each physical host machine as a separate Web site.
