Well, for starters, if a domain name is not pointing to the IP address 
of a particular server, it'll never resolve to that server, regardless 
of your Apache configuration.  This is all handled through DNS, and has 
nothing to do with Apache.  The VirtualHost directive in Apache simply 
serves to allow multiple "virtual" hosts to exist on one machine, and 
therefore will point the requests for each host to the appropriate place 
on the server - this only happens AFTER the request arrives knocking at 
your IP address, however.

As for your second problem, through what exactly are you uploading?  For 
example, is it ASP, PHP, Perl, or some other scripting language?  The 
quick way to find out is to look at the extension of the page to which 
you're uploading.  Apache itself, as far as I know, doesn't support 
uploading directly except through WebDAV.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
