    I am used to Plesk and Plesk clearly allows you to create a website as either IP based or Name Based. The Name based can have several websites using the same IP. CPanel doesn't use the same vocabulary (or I missed it). When I think I am creating a website, it looks like it actually creates a sub-Domain.

    Can anyone clarify this for me? For example, If I want web1 to be IP based and both web2 & web3 being name based and sharing the same IP, how would I set them up? Do I have to edit the config file directly?

    Let me understand what you're trying to accomplish. You want the account web1 to have a dedicated IP address but web2 and web3 to be on a separate shared IP (such that web2 and web3 are on the same IP)?
