How do you direct web traffic incoming to 2 different web servers

I have 2 servers, one is my main server with our website.  The other is a unix server that I have a web application on it.

Both the website and the application require web access to access these programs.  The problem is that I have all my 80 traffic directed to my main server.  So when I try to access my application on the second server, it gets directed to the main server instead.

Can I somehow use a different port to differentiate the traffic?  Or is there another way to tell my router what to do with the 2 different "port 80" traffic?

Thanks

Hello

What kind of firewall do you have? Do you have more than one public IP to use?

The firewall I use is on my router.  I only have one dynamic address to use.  However, the website and application both have "no-ip.com" on them so that they both have a "static" ip address.

Traffic coming into the router on port 80 is directed to a server on port 80 as specified in the router configuration. You can change to a different port on that server if you want.
To get to your other server will require using a different port so like traffic coming into the router on port 81 can be redirected to the other server (you can use port 80 on that server if you want and your router supports that).
If you want to use port 80 for both, all traffic will wind up on your main server and that server could use the Host Header to redirect traffic to the second server.

Just to clarify:

As long as you only have one public IP you cannot separate the traffic by IP, but must do it on destination port. Then your public URL:s to the two servers must look something like this:

http://server.no-ip.com
and
http://server.no-ip.com:81
