It sounds like you want to set up name based virtual hosts.
That is SOP for many servers.   It is documented.

You would also have to deal with the name server issues to get
the web stuff (ports 80 and 443) directed to your single IP.  If
you do the name service, that is easy.  If you have to beg another
service, then that could be the hardest part.
