Go to Stores > Configuration & Select Store View:

I created a German website, German website store & German store view as shown in the above screenshot.

Under the General section click on Web.

Expand Base URLs & Base URLs (Secure) section and Enter this website’s URL. For example

Flush the Magento cache. (System > Cache Management).

After that, you need to modify index.php

$params = $_SERVER;$domain2store = array(
    ''=>'de_website', // Replace your Website, Store or Storeview code with this.
    $storecode = $domain2store[$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']];
$params[\Magento\Store\Model\StoreManager::PARAM_RUN_CODE] = isset($storecode) ? $storecode : '';
$params[\Magento\Store\Model\StoreManager::PARAM_RUN_TYPE] = 'website';
$bootstrap = \Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap::create(BP, $params);
