Is it possible to make an apache ip based virutal host only respond to a specific host name?

I have a rouge domain name pointing to my server. I know I could redirect it or throw up a 401, but would just rather the server not even respond to a request with this hostname.


Any request with a Host header that does not match the ServerName in any <VirtualHost> section falls through to the "main" server configuration. As such here is no way to outright prevent a connection, but you can "short circuit" the request by sending back a blank response, or by pointing DocumentRoot somewhere that doesn't exist.
