Forward external web traffic to internal web server based on URL?

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.

The only way to do this would be with a reverse proxy.  You would need this box inside and route port 80 to that box.  The reverse proxy could then determine which host to send the domain traffic to.

Actually I found an easier way to do it. My hosting company allows redirects, so what I did was open port 8080 on my router and forwarded it to tradewinds.local on port 80, and at my web hosting end I created a redirect for subdomain.tradewinds.com to go to myip:8080

That would also work.  So your hosting company is doing the reverse proxy in this case.
