Stephen, your question is overly broad for this mailing list. It is very
unlikely someone is going to take the (unpaid) time to evaluate your
specific situation and propose a solution. This is really something you
should be paying a consultant to help you find a satisfactory solution.
Having said that you should be looking to employ a "reverse proxy" of some
sort. That could be an Apache httpd instance dedicated to doing nothing
more than responding to requests on your fixed/static IP by looking at the
"Host" header and forwarding the request to the appropriate web server
running in one of your virtual machines and passing the response back to
the requestor. There are also software and hardware solutions optimized for
this task such as

> I expect keeping the Host clean for running VirtualBox ONLY.

Then you need another system that handles all traffic to/from your single
fixed/static IP address on which you can run a "reverse proxy" and forwards
traffic to the appropriate VMs on your VirtualBox host.
