Hello,

You could add a wildcard server block for all of your domains like this:

server {
    listen  80;
    server_name *.domain.com;

    root /var/www/example.com/sites/fivespan;

}

If you are not sure how to create server blocks you could take a look at this tutorial here:

Then after that you can create separate server blocks for each subdomain name that you would like to have specific content for.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
