Apache virtual host, as explained by Apache, refers to the practice of running more than one web site (such as www.site1.com and www.site2.com) on a single machine. Virtual hosts can be “IP-based” or “name-based”. By default, Ubuntu already has this capability enabled, so things are much easier to configure these days..

cd /etc/apache2/sites-available

sudo vim vishalvyas.com.conf and enter your VirtualHost directive. Below I've put the most basic example, see Apache docs for details and additional features:

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerName vishalvyas.com
   DocumentRoot /home/vishal/vyas_html

Save & exit.

sites-available: this directory has configuration files for Apache2 Virtual Hosts. Virtual Hosts allow Apache2 to be configured for multiple sites that have separate configurations.

sites-enabled: like mods-enabled, sites-enabled contains symlinks to the /etc/apache2/sites-available directory. Similarly when a configuration file in sites-available is symlinked, the site configured by it will be active once Apache2 is restarted.

sudo vim /etc/hosts and add your new domain to the localhost line so it looks like this: localhost vishalvyas.com

Save & exit.

Enable your new virtualhost:
sudo a2ensite vishalvyas.com.conf

Reload the Apache configuration:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload

Repeat for each of your VirtualHosts.
