Indeed ;-)

No, I don't think so... TCP/IP does not carry any hostname information, so
routing would have to be done in the application layer protocol. HTTP, for
example, carries the hostname with it - that's why domain based hosting is
available (and possible ;-) e.g. in Apache.

The "connection name" that you were refering to is the IP address...
