Having multiple domain names resolving to the same IP address is perfectly reasonable. The server typically uses the "host" header to determine which site hosted on that address to route the request to, usually with a fall-back site for unrecognised hosts.

However, if the other site isn't associated with your company, and you're not using shared hosting, it sounds like someone's made a mistake with their DNS records. You could try running a "whois" query on the other domain to see if you can contact the owners to let them know.

Having a second domain pointing to your IP address wouldn't cause any technical problems. If you're worried about your company's site appearing for requests to the other domain, you could add a dummy site to your server with the specific host header, which would serve up a static HTML page notifying visitors of the mistake.

Configure a Host Header for a Web Site (IIS 7)[^]
