Assuming you mean DNS domains...

A host can service any number of domains. Just create files to
hold each domain and then create your named.boot saying your
primary for each domain.

Now the catch is a single IP should be mapped to a single name.
So your site will really be "name.domain.whatever" with an IP of
"a.b.c.d" with the miracle of CNAME records you could say
that several machines are your domain...and few programs would be
the wiser.
