Subnets, Domains & Sites

Can Domains span multiple IP subnets? Yes

Can a site span across multiple subnets? Yes, although a subnet is usually one of the determining factors is defining a site.

Can Multiple Domains and Sites share the same IP subnet? Technically yes,although because a subnet is usually defined as a network segment connected to a single router ethernet port, a subnet cannot span multiple physical sites unless they are all connected to the same router port.
