No, Lua does not have that level of control. The one thing it could perhaps
do in the upcoming 3.4 is translate one name into two others, which are each
tried in turn.

So you ask for www.richardconnon.com and that is translated into a query for
www1.richardconnon.com and if that doesn't work www2.richardconnon.com.

But I'm not sure this will work, or if it even is what you want.
