For your first question about ip addresses, php can only detect the ip address which is sent from the isp (internet service provider). So if for example a proxy server is setup then only the last link in the ip address chain before reaching your isp will be recorded and readable by php. So the variable/array for getting the ip address from as far traced back as possible is the following:


As for your second question, if your trying to make fake domains under a localhost environment then I would suggest to look at the apache virtual host configuration.
