Apache Redirect or Rewrite

You can quickly create a .htaccess file to have a domain forward to a different one.

Redirect 301 / http://www.theotherdomain.com

-OR-

RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^mystuff.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.theotherdomain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

You can then use curl to see if the headers were updated.

[root@www ~]# curl -I www.mystuff.com
