you'll just need to add unique info in the header sections, and make sure the DNS entries match.  for internal traffic, you can just use a single name instead of Full Qualified urls.
look at the default website properties to see how it's set if you need.

To Harel66: This works for multiple HTTP sites on same IIS server, but this does not work if using HTTPS - one is unable to choose host header when specifying use of certificates (HTTPS).

To Harel66: Mmm. Is it impossible, or troublesome, or simple to set up the 2nd HTTPS site using a non-standard port?

I found a solution online: www.sslshopper.com/article-ssl-host-headers-in-iis-7.html.
It requires using wild-card certificates - which is not an option for me.
