We (Fairplay Communications) do just what you're after.  We host domain
names free with purchase of an account, and setting up your virtual
domains would entail only a reasonable one-time setup fee.  Contact me
with details on the number of virtual domains and I can quote you a setup

And of course, we use Linux! :-)
