I have two websites which are hosted externally:-

contoso.com
tradewinds.com

I have two internal IIS servers:-

contoso.local
tradewinds.local

I have a working A record for subdomain.contoso.com - the IP address is the static IP of my broadband router. This router is forwarding port 80 to the IP address of contoso.local

My question is this. I want to now have an A record for subdomain.tradewinds.com, but traffic to this should be forwarded to tradewinds.local which of course is behind the same public IP on the same router.

What's the easiest way to do this, without the need for an additional public IP on my router.
