Sorry I have to disagree, using a web server that is http 1.1
compliant you can have one ip linked to several virtual domains and
server pages for each.

=46rom memory the Apache Documentation details how to do this.
(When I was playing with it, it took me less than 1/2 an hour to get
it operational)

Basically you point the virtual domains at the same IP.

ifconfig and route the IP

configure apache to handle the virutal domains.

When a request comes in the server software actually get the domain
name from the details provided to it and serves the correct pages.
