Sounds like you should use the TrackHostExits and TrackHostExitsExpire
options in the Tor config file. The first sets a list of domains for
which Tor should try to use the same exit relay for a given amount of
time, specified using the second. For example

TrackHostsExits .example.org
TrackHostsExitsExpire 7200

will tell Tor to try to use the same exit relay for all subdomains of
example.org for 2 hours (7200 seconds). See the manual for more
information: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en
