Default Can it be done? two ISPConfig servers?

I've got one ISPConfig server up and running and it's great! Now I want a second development/test/whatever server that I can use and abuse without taking down the production system. I know that ISPConfig doesn't support two servers right now, which is OK.

What I'd like to do is direct http, ftp, pop3 traffic to the test or production servers based on its url. For example http://www.mydomain.com goes to the production server and http://test.mydomain.com goes to the test server. I only have one routable IP address provided by my ISP. The servers are on my private 10.x network. My router isn't all that special either, D-Link DGL-4500, it only has the ability to route traffic based on the port.

So here are my questions.
  • Is this a DNS or a router project?
  • If it is a DNS project would MyDNS play nicely with ISPConfig and make the setup and maintenance easier?

It's possible to forward and proxy hosts on an internal network through proxying. But this seems more of an effort than it's worth. Loadbalancers, squid, nginex etc..

Maybe run your site on a different port on your other server? Change Listen port to port 82 or something on your dev server and then just forward port 82 to your dev server.
