For the above, I am trying to set up the blog at

  2. But the above is not coming into effect because of the rule

Please rewrite your question with real names and addresses. Reading all these hypothetical addresses makes my head hurt. – womble Jan 13 '10 at 4:10
Sure will do that.One more thing is as a new user it is not allowing me to post more than one link. – Rama Vadakattu Jan 13 '10 at 4:17
I tried to find a question in this I could answer, but I failed. – Michael Graff Jan 13 '10 at 7:47

As womble and Michael Graff wrote, your question is extremely confused. I cannot parse it entirely but I can try to point some issues:

  1. Is the domain alumclub.NET or alumclub.COM ? You used both and it is hard to know if it is significant.
  2. DNS wildcards do not have precedence over ordinary names so, unlike what you wrote, * does not block

So, there is no reason it should not work. Try it, and, if it fails, post details: real domain names, actual config, actual error messages, not vague summaries.
