Hey experts,

  I have one site (mysite.com) hosted on my server using apache; I need to change a configuration flag in apache to allow my server to only process requests to mysite.com and to deny all other requests; for example, if there is a site example.com pointing to my server ip, I want my server to deny requests to this site; any help on what this flag in apache is?

The simplest approach is to use NameBased VirtualHosts
The default virtual host (catch all) should deny anyone.

Another approach is to use mod_rewrite, eg.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www.)?mysite.com
RewriteRule .* - [L,F]
