"Virtual hosts let you run more than one Web site on the same server. In this article, I'll show you how to set up your server to run virtual hosts...."

"It's this trick that lets me run several Web sites on my home machine, from a variety of different domain names, and several names within one domain, so that my one little machine behind my DSL link looks like a room full of servers. Neat trick."

"Well, you probably already have some ideas in mind. But here's how I generally use virtual hosts. I work for a Web-design company, and when we're developing a customer site, we set up a virtual host specially for that company. These are usually name-based, since these are faster to set up (one step shorter), and are almost always internal only. That is, the names are put into our internal DNS, so that internal hosts can see the Web sites, but external browsers see only the boring, featureless external page on our development server."
