Well, I've never really used IIS (NIMDA, CodeRed, hacks out the yazoo - I don't like getting hacked so I don't use it), so I can't say if its as easy as the way IIS does it.

Apache's configuration is controlled by the httpd.conf file. This file contains Directives that control how Apache is configured and behaves. Alterations are generally made by editing this file, altho I understand there are some GUIs to handle it.

To do Name-based or IP-based (Apache supports both) Virtual Hosts in Apache 1.3.x, check out http://httpd.apache.org/docs/vhosts/index.html

Generally speaking, you'll edit the httpd.conf file to add statements supporting the Virtual Hosts you want to have. An example set of Virtual Host statements can be found at the end of the httpd.conf file.

Remember to restart Apache after changing the httpd.conf file. A wise person also makes a backup copy of the httpd.conf file so that if they make a mistake they can't undo, they can always fall back to a known-good copy of the file and start over.

You use the Virtual Host feature of Apache (<VirtualHost> directive).

Since you haven't bothered to specify what version (v1.3.x or 2.x) of Apache you're using, and since I'm not a mindreader, I can only point you to the general Apache documentation page http://httpd.apache.org/docs-project/

If you'd specified the version of Apache, I could be more specific. As it is, go to that URL, select your version of Apache, and look up the VirtualHosts page.
