I use dreamweaver and have a hosting package at Freeparking.co.nz

I have enough capacity to host several websites and am told I can do this by modifying the .htaccess file.
I have one website eg www.1stdomain.co.nz in host directory /var/www/html/
and wish to have another www.2nddomain.co.nz website at folder at /var/www/html/www2nddomainconz/

How do I write a .htaccess file and where do I store it so it shows both websites. currently the 2nd website is mapped/forwarded to the first website

I hope to have about 6 websites hosted on the one package.

Try using mod_rewrite and the HTTP_HOST variable.
