    I have a problem and need help on how to solve it.

    First, I will be getting a single static IP and would like to host 3 different personal websites each with their own domain name.

    I configured ISPCONFIG with the local IP in the mean time.

    #1 Since I will only have a single static IP, what IP should I give the websites when I create them in the ISPCONFIG panel?

    #2 How can I reach the websites through the IP

    #3 When I get my static IP, I have to change the DNS info on domains I have registered on Godaddy or Namesecure, which DNS servers do I specify?

    Any help will be greatly apreciated.

    You can have as many websites with one IP as you like.

    1) Assign all sites the same IP.
    2) You cant, as the sites are namebased and not IP based. Just enter the domain name of the site in the browser and not the IP.
    3) Just change the IP, you dont have to specify any namservers when you use the nameservers from godaddy.

    Just one more thing:
    If it only works on domain name and not on IP, will i still be able to reference a sub folder such as:

    Sure. nambased vhosts are the most commonly used vhosts in hosting setups. they do everything that a normal vhost does, you can just not access them by IP as they all share the same IP.
