There are ofcourse apache modules that manipulate page content. and
you might be able to use this, see for example SSI
However this is not how I would do it. What I would do is add a
(custom) response header with the hostname. Maybe your loadbalancer
can do this, or you can do this in your webserver config. If you
install "LiveHTTPHeaders" in your webbrowser (I asume you use Firefox)
you can see the headers with "tools/page info" and so will see where
the page came from without having to tinker with the page content.
