Chapter 11.  Web Services and Security > Host multiple sites on one IP address

11.2. Host multiple sites on one IP address

Perhaps you're setting up a Windows 2000 Server computer to use as a web server, and need to know how to host multiple sites with just one IP address. With IP addresses at a premium, this type of problem is common. You can use one of two methods to host multiple sites on a single IP address: use host headers or use varying TCP ports.
