Host Header
Host headers on Linux?

Is there any feature similar to the Host Header in IIS that allows multiple sites from one IP address?

My client wishes to park all the domains on the main one and
then based upon the domain name typed into the browser displays the info for that page entered based upon the FQDN typed in.

Thanks.

Depends on which web-server you use.

If Apache, then is provided as standard via Virtual domains. The precise implementation may depend on which flavour of Linux (different distros can give slightly different variations on the httpd.conf file that is principally used to implement this), but the number of domains and/or sub-domains is literally able to go into the millions.
