I want to redirect any request from one domain to another but not request the page on the new domain or pass parameters. The closest I got was:

RedirectMatch permanent ^(.*)$

but this passes the parameters (e.g. ?param=one) which is messy.

From the docs:

... when you want to erase an existing query string, end the substitution 
string with just a question mark. 

So, I guess this should work:

   RedirectMatch permanent ^(.*)$

Thanks, that's pretty much it - still shows the question mark though. – Mark Robinson Apr 20 '12 at 17:45
