1. Configure your DNS to point all names to the IP of your server. This is done in the masterconfig file, which is given in named.conf (or named.boot) depending on your bind. See "man named" for details.

2. In httpd.conf you need lines like these:

BindAddress *
#or BindAddress 192.168.1.1

NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.1

# then you need a VirtualHost container like this
# for every virtual site:

<VirtualHost 192.168.1.1>
DocumentRoot /usr/local/httpd/site1-directory
ServerName www.domain-of.this-server.whatever
# next is just an option
ServerAlias www.another-name.whatever alocalmachinename
#
# other config commands for this server if needed.
#
</VirtualHost>



This should be it.

Use "nslookup" to verify your dns and resolver setup.
Does "nslookup my.url.com" give you the right output, i.e. does your machine ask the right nameserver and do you get the correct IP as an response?

If this doesnt help, tell us more about your configuration and what did you check ...?
