I have a domain which is parked onto

I have created the subdomain by editing's named file:

m 14400 IN A  ip-address
www.m 14400 IN A  ip-address

This works somewhat: if I go to it redirects to

This is my question:

I would like to redirect this subdomain to as that is the domain it is parked on. I do not know how to do this as does not have its own .htaccess file, etc. (due to it being a parked domain) so I can't do any mod_rewrite magic.

Can anyone help me?


EDIT: Clarification

I have solved this issue.

  1. Edit's DNS record so it has a subdomain: m 14400 IN A ip-address
  2. Add to's ServerAlias in httpd.conf
  3. Restart both Bind and Apache
  4. Going to will now bring you to
  5. You can then use's .htaccess for your normal URL rewriting.
