Heh, thanks for the humor. 

I'm used to having control over both Web server and DNS server and the way I normally handle these things is via an Apache virtual host configuration. However, I'm under pressure to lose control of DNS and hand it over to a company like Go Daddy or Network Solutions where you can pay to have a domain name point to a specific URL.

Maybe this question should change to learning how these companies do that sort of thing.
