you will have the a recorde which is the server that hosts the sites.
Then you will use the CNAME record which creates aliases.
Lets say that your web server has the ip 10.0.0.1 and the server name is web.test.com

now you will create an alias (CNAME record in DNS) and you say that the server web.test.com with the IP 10.0.0.1 has also the name web1.test.com.

The logic of the DNS is very simple. Just tell us what IP we need to reach given the name. It is very common to use multiple domain names that map to only one IP
