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

I have a domain example.com pointing to Linux AWS.
I also have demo.example.com which i need to point to /htdocs/c5 of example2.com on Windows Server running XAMPP.

My Findings
Used A record of demo.example.com point to example2.com
Changed the httpd.conf on Windows Server to

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/c5"
    ServerName demo.example.in 

If i do so all my requests are forwarded to /htdocs/c5.
But i need only if request from demo.example.com comes it need to be forwarded to /htdoc/c5 & if i access example2.com it should display /htdocs

URL masking: i mean example2.com should be displayed in addressbar instead of example.com/c5

You need to make a second virtual host, not replace the original. Make one for example.com and one for demo.example.com.
