Sorry, I was confusing "domain" with "appdomain", which are totally
different things :)

 From a comment of XSP's sources:

// TODO: support vhosts in xsp.exe

So it's not implemented.

However, how are you using xsp? If it's listening on port 80 then
it's probably executed as root, which is not a good idea, because
xsp doesn't drop its privileges like a real Unix web server does.

Use a smallish web server like lighttpd and configure a reverse
proxy to xsp which you can run on another higher port as
a normal user.

With lighttpd you can also configure vhosts (this is what you
called "domains"), so you can kill two birds with one stone.
