If I have 3 domain names: siteA, siteB, and siteC. Lets say all of these sites are stored on the same server, however I want to lock siteB down to only a certain subnet and siteC to a broader subnet.

Is there any way to achieve this using only IPTables and Apache?

Sure, apache's mod_access will take care of this nicely. Throw something like this into the .htaccess for the sites to which you want to restrict access:

Deny from all
Allow from
Allow from
