I don't understand what you want to accomplish. If you want Virtual Hosting, you will need the following

DNS setup: resolves to also resolves to yet again resolves to

In /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, under section 3 'Virtual Hosts', you will need to define as /var/www/html/site1, as /var/www/html/site2, etc. When you access the httpd server via the name, you will automatically read the index from /var/www/html/site2. Take a look at the examples in the httpd.conf file for more guidance.

If this isn't the type of set up you are looking for at all, you'll need to refine your question a little more.
