Sure. The virtual domain has a separate config file. See the documentation:

1) Too much power to the user? You can maintain the config files yourself
and have them point to template files for the site owner.

2) Nope--you can run one htdig run for your entire site and restrict the
virtual hosts to only return results from their domain.

3) You can set almost every directory using the config file.
