Is it possible to set a ddns hostname to access a name-based virtual host?

When using apache (you haven't told what web server you are using) you can
define a virtual host which has a server name and a
serveralias of some_domain. then apache will respond to urls which have
either in the host header with the defined virtual host. This assumes that
either can be resolved to an IP from the requesting host.
Perhaps it is advisable to start googling for "virtual hosts" to further
determine how you should do it.

Hope this helps.
