difference between A and CNAME
Can someone please explain the difference between A and CNAME when setting up an entry in a DNS. Where would I use one and not use the other.
I'm basically concerned with this because I want to host more than one site on my computer with it's single IP address. Should the server be listed with an A reference and the other domains that wish to be hosted with a CNAME reference!?
Thanks in advance,

Thanks, that clears things up a lot.
Appreciate you taking the time.... CNAME's --- evil little things...
