Split-server{ } subdomains.

Yes, because   nginx isn’t needing  the name to resolve to different locations.

Your DNS zones should send all  request to X ip address.
Then nginx will just read in the HOST header from the  http request and load the appropriate server entry from your configuration.

Does that make sense?

Can i have:

listen 80;
server_name domain.com www.domain.com;
root /dir1;
listen 80;
server_name sub.domain.com;
root /dir2;

Without adding an A-record for sub.domain.com's DNS?
