I am still unclear on the whole routing issue. Could someone please explain how ISPConfig knows which website to route a request to. In my case:

I currently have two websites set up on me webserver and corresponding domain names. (FYI...I have not done any configuration on the taylor-motorsports website at my domain registrar. I wanted to get the first site up and running before I started on the second)

A person wanting to see my website will type either www.effininsurance.com or www.taylor-motorsports.com

Federal Domain will see this request, will look up the "A" record and will send to my external IP address (24.106.106.99)

My router will forward to my webserver 192.168.1.41

This is where I am lost. How does ISPConfig know to transfer the request for effininsurance.com to /var/www/client1/web1/web/ and to transfer requests for taylor-motorsports.com to /var/www/client2/web1/web/
