I have 4 domains and one hosting account. I would like to put files for each domain in a separate sub-directory as none of the domains are related. I think, but am not sure, that I need to use htaccess. file but do not understand how it knows if it is www.boat.com or www.hair.com . I may be headed completely in the wrong direction here and apologize if this has been answered before.

We would need a lot more info. The most vital being what web-framework or programming language are the sites written in? You may submit a support ticket at panel.webfaction.com so we can look directly. If you know nothing about the platform you should read these docs to get a foundation,

http://www.webfaction.com/demos/control-panel
http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/websites.html#creating-a-website

Our software docs are listed here,

You should look up the specific application framework's official documentation for more details on domain routing options for it as well.

I will read the documents, I'm sure I'm not up to speed to do this yet. So far I only have 2 of the sites written in html, very simple sites. Will get back when I have read and learned more. Thank You Johns

If they are written in HTML than it is as easy as copying them into their own "Static/PHP/CGI" applications.
