Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a domain alias that i want to forward to a specific directory on my main site. How do I get it so that only people visiting the alias "fakesite.com" to be redirected to "mainsite.com/fake" instead of everyone redirected to that?

This is on the windows platform at myhosting.com

Please add details as to which web server software you're using. –  EEAA Feb 23 '10 at 2:21
You still didn't tell us what web server software you're using. It's most likely either IIS or Apache. –  EEAA Feb 23 '10 at 5:18

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName fakesite.com
    Redirect / http://mainsite.com/fake

Configure the fakesite.com site (in IIS) to be a permanent redirection to another webpage mainsite.com/fake

Should probably tick the "A permanent redirection for this resource" box and "the exact URL entered above"..
