Currently I am using this

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^hello.xxx.net$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.hello.xxx.net$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xxx.net/hello$1 [R=301,L]

This will redirect my visitors even they have typed in http://hello.xxx.net/anything
I only wish to redirect "hello.xxx.net", but not http://hello.xxx.net/WHATEVER

Whats the correct code?
Thanks

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^hello.xxx.net$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.hello.xxx.net$
RewriteRule ^$ http://www.xxx.net/hello [R=301,L]
#last rule says, that redirection should trigger only if there's nothing except "/" in url path
