So me and a few friends have been running this server and we are expanding and what none of us can seem to figure out how to do is how to have multiple domains on one server address?

Both of the domains are pointing at the server, but we have no idea how to set up DNS too point too two different directories.


Anyone know how to do this or could point me in the right direction?

DNS stands for Domain Name Server. They (Domain Name Servers) resolve a domain name to a server, like a phone book. Therefore you cannot 'set up dns' to point to two different directories.

The process varies depending on which type of server you are running. If you are using Apache, look here.

Are you talking about subdomains?

Example: Your website is called mywebsite.com

Subdomains would make it:
subdomain.mywebsite.com
subdomain2.mywebsite.com
