Default hosting 2 websites off the ftp server?

trying to figure how some of our past designers have done this...
seems that our company has a single ftp server and we have 2 websites running off the same server...

is this feasible?

sorry for the uber general question... still learning... slowly...

Yeah, just put them in separate folders and point the URLs at them.

Usually hosts will allow you to create a sub-domain. This creates a new root folder usually with the new domain name in the title, say corrosiveoline.co.uk. Then I point that domain to the nameservers via DNS settings and it should pick it up. It may be worth checking with your hosts for exact guidance though.

is it possible to "backtrack" sort of... and find where my websites are being hosted?

for example, www.bearusa.com is one of them and other is www.kingofgreenestreet.com

i've been looking inside the bearusa's ftp server files and i do not find anything for the other site...

thanks in advance.
