    The router doesn't make things more complex in any way.
    Presuming that you have a static IP address, point the domain names at that IP address in DNS, and configure the router to forward port 80 to the web server. By default the server will serve the default web site on for all the domains.

    However if you want multiple web sites, then create the sites as normal and use host headers to control which web site is delivered for which domain name. You configure host headers using the Advanced button on first tab of the web site properties.
