I've got a numer of sites (hosted at Orchard Hosting) which are all under my 
main domain there.  My domains mumpers.org.uk and cclgb.org.uk are served 
from the public_html/mumpers and public_html/cclgb directories respectively.

As far as I can see, no-one starting at http://www.mumpers.org.uk can get to 
any of the cclgb.org.uk pages.   I'm not too bothered if people going 
directly to my main domain name find the linked info, since they'd be likely 
to know about my involvement in both anyway!

Does your host allow you to do somehting like this?  All it actually needs is 
for you to be able to associate a domain with  directory, and it sounds as 
though this is possible.   You might need a further domain name to sit at the 
'top of the tree', though, unless you can have webspace under a username 
rather than a domain name.
