Is it possible to create a vlan inside a transport vlan?

Between our hosting and a customer we have an extended vlan, traveling on a fiber, between two cisco 3560 switches.

The thing is, that we want to create one or more vlans inside that extended vlan, in some way if possible?

Allow me understand you. I am not mistaken you wan to encapsulate multiple vlans into one vlan and transport it across the network. Would I be right? If yes, then the answer to your requirement would be to use Q-in-Q also known as dot1-q tunneling. Please see the below link for more info on this.

Hi,

What I understand  is, you have one extended vlan which is running on the fiber at present between your hosting (example DC) and customer.
Now you want creat another extended vlan (range of existing vlan) and that needs to be traverse on the fiber between hosting (example DC) and customer. Is this correct?
