Best way I've come across so far was to create null/minimalst DNS
zonefiles for add company's domains on a local machine, then all you've
got to worry about is an unresolveable host type error & you've got all
your bandwidth saved, this of course is broken by pages which use ip's
instead of names, but it does make a significant (10 -20 % in some
cases) difference when you've got a lot of people sharing a small line.
