yes, just pass them with the -host option. if you want, you can also
specify the virtual host header by using the -vhost option.

They should yield different results as they are going to be scanned
with the Host header set to "abx.freehostia.com" or
"ghg.freehostia.com" unless you use the IP or the -vhost option to
specify something different.
