Routing incoming requests to different IP


I think i've pretty much figured out how to do this anyway but a second opinion is always useful.

Plain and simple, I have a linux machine that i'm using as a webserver which allows incoming connections for web, mail, ftp, etc. Depending on the domain name i'd like certain requests e.g. to be routed to one IP and to be routed to another IP.

Is this just a case of configuring a DNS server on the linux machine, e.g BIND?

You would need to configure DNS using software such as BIND. The authoritative name server will resolve and provide the IP address accordingly which the client (browser/resolver) will request for content from your web server.

A search for configure + BIND should yield many useful results.
