Hello, I have a server working on Apache and now I can access each project through the URL http://myserver/proyect1, http://myserver/proyect2 and so on,  where myserver is the root, but I want it to look and work this way http://myserver.proyect1 where myserver.proyect1 is the root folder for that project.

My server is running on Mac OS 10.8 with XAMPP.

Thanks.

From a DNS point of view project1.myserver.mynetwork.local would be the better choice.
In your case, "myserver" can be found via your local dns server (build in internet router most times) or broadcast.
Excursion: In domain name context the most global part is on the right and it becomes more specific the further you go to the left. .local as toplevel-domain is reserved for private purpose.

To have other names be found you need either a configurable dns server or add all other names to the hosts-file of your client(s). (/etc/hosts or %WINDIR%\sytem32\etc\drivers\hosts). After this is done all those names direct to your apache.
In your apache config have a look at virtual hosts. Most distributions have their specific examples. I don't know XAMPP that far but it should come with example configs, too.
