That's not how it works. You have to run two different httpd's (with
different root areas, of course). They would run on diff ports, say one
on 80 (default) and the other on 2000. URL for the first is

and that for the second

assuming that is the DNS equivalent of, and is a more
logical name for the second server.

The port number has to be there. Am I missing a point?
