I think in this case, the server parses more than just his page, and more than just his domain, perhaps. This is just his way of "turning it back on" even though the sysadmin for the server that hosts his site has it turned off. Just a guess.

I have sites that have it both ways. btrott has a good point, however: doing it later would also allow you to cache the answers, freeing some (perhaps a lot) of calls to gethostbyaddr. Unless it is a really, really busy page, however, it probably does not hurt too much to look it up each time.

[Veltro]: ok, but nm. I meant the solution as a whole actually. Not sincerely the apps that use it
[marto]: and not long ago it wasn't feasible for anyone really to create a finger print of all known music to compare samples against...
[marto]: if you're living in the cloud, you're going to get rained on :P
[Veltro]: feasible in the sense of 'making money'?
[marto]: if your app just calls a remote or third party service to do the task, you app does not 'do the task', it's just a messenger
[marto]: in the sense that for various values of "a while ago" it would not have been possible (and arguable still isn't) to have a fingerprint of every piece of commercially released music to compare against.
[marto]: a co-worker refers to the late 1980s as "a while ago"
