    Default Hosting multiple domains (URLs) on same server [newbie alert]

    Hi all
    I am a 1-month old Alphafive user, coming from 25 years of Visual FoxPro development. The power of this product is impressive, mainly for writing great web/mobile applications.
    I have my own server hosted @ an isp, with a unique IP address. Currently, i have 3 or 4 different domain names that point to that server.
    I would like now to develop web applications on that server using AlphaFive v11 and host them there, in the following manner:
    www.customer1.com should point to c:\a5webroot\customer1
    www.customer2.com should point to c:\a5webroot\customer2
    etc...
    This is a little like host headers in iis.
    How can i achieve this? I've been through all the options in the Web Project Profiles, but it lacks the final connection between the URL (i.e www.customer1.com ) and the directory itself as specified in the alias

    Thank you,
    Jaime

    search the forum for "multiple instances", its been discussed at great length. You need one IP for each website. Alpha does not do host-headers.

    Just went through a gazillion posts on this, and i am more confused now than before i started, to the point i'm just going to sleep now :-)
    I posted here since i thought there may be some news about this in v11 :-(

    V11 is the same, except I understand they have a method to track instances and charge for them.
