2 Domains, 1 Server

I understand that you can have 2 (or more) domain names assigned to a single IP address and then have the server route to the correct web site based on the request headers.

How does this work?  Are there any websites that would explain?  Something not "For Dummies", but not for 20 year admin veterans?

TIA

 Your DNS must be setup so that all the different domain names that are coming to the server are resolving to the same IP address.

    You can usually do this most easily by using the CNAME record in your DNS database.  That way if you need to change the IP of the server, you    only need to change it in one place and all the CNAME records will follow.

            That and the host header (which you've said you already did) is all you need to do.
