Port forwarding based on visited url(record)

I have the following question.

Our customer has more than 1 webserver in the network with only one single WAN external ip address. I should create multiple VIP's in the firewall to a different webserver with the same port 80. There are multiple vip's with external port 80 needed and routing should be done based on the visited website url. So for example when we visit www.joskevermeulen.be it should route to internal ip address webserver A (external port 80) and when we visite extranet.joskevermeulen.be it should route to internal ip address webserver B (external port 80).

This is usually accomplished with host headers.

This is not a solution. In the end we decided to separate on external ports for example;

Site 1 comes in via HTTPS
Site 2 comes in via HTTP

Problem is bypassed.
