Yes.

No, ISPConfig will create a "Shared IP" website as soon as you've set up your first web site in ISPConfig, and all requests that cannot be allocated to one of the web sites that you set up with ISPConfig go to this "Shared IP" web site which tells the users that they must use the correct domain to access the correct web site.
