You would have to do header inspection.  This will allow the server to look into the headers and get the domain out of them and then it can forward it properly to the right host.  Not sure 100% on how to do this with you current software but searching for header inspection may help.

It sounds like the software already has this feature just adding the domains should be enough.  Then you would just use a different home directory for each domain.  When you setup DNS use the IP Address from the server and Simple Control Panel it appears from my brief research will inspect the header in the packet and handle the routing.
