Seems like the already-given solution takes care of your problem - I'm
not sure why it wouldn't work "100% of the time"?  Under what
circumstances doesn't it work?  The only one I can think of is if the
browser fails to send a Host: header in the HTTP request, but that's a
protocol violation and no real browser would do it.

If what you want is a solution that works for all requests, not just the
index page (ie you can request http://www.site1.com/dir/file.htm and get
/site1/dir/file.htm) then I think a custom error page is the only
possible way, without being able to modify the server config.
