True, standard practice, but that doesn't mean that it *has* to be done
like this.

I do, I do! ;)

Cause most people probably aren't knowledgeable enough or don't have the

Which issues? If you remove the ServerAlias from the apache config these
domains can be safely separated, even on IP if you wish.

I'm hosting a kind of fall back page at http://ottolander.nl which is
what shows up if someone tries to access one of the virtual hosts by IP.
This domain is clearly separate from http://www.ottolander.nl.
