Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-01-13 22:18:59 UTC
this is actually a feature.  DNS lookups are off in apache for performance
reasons.  Otherwise, each access would result in a DNS lookup, which is VERY
SLOW relative to other operations.

You can enable them though if you wish.  Please read the apache manual.
