    Hello,

    It can be that the three websites are pointing to the same IP adress.
    When you type the name of a website in the browser, the name is looked up by the DNS server (Domain name system).
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System
    The names of the websites are in a kind table with the IP adresses as return value.
    There can be more website names that will give the same IP adress and show you the same website.

    Greetings,
    Bertus
