How to Redirect Domains in Apache but keep vanity URL in original domain

Hi

I would like to redirect a domain like so:

www.originaldomain.com to
www.newdomain.com/loginpage.jsp

I would like the url "www.originaldomain.com" to still be visible in the address bar, not the new domain. Is this possible with Apache or PHP?

Thanks!

Just off first glance since it's in the PHP zone, if you're keeping the old domain anyways, put the following code on the very first line of the old domain's root folder's index.php file:
 
<?php header('location: http://www.newdomain/loginpage.jsp'); ?>

Open in new window

Thanks, but this does not resolve the issue I'm concerned with, which is:

I would like the url "www.originaldomain.com" to still be visible in the address bar, NOT the new domain address.

Ohhh, I see. Put this in the head of your index on the old server:

<frameset rows="100%,*" border="0">
  <frame src="http://www.newserver.com/loginpage.jsp" frameborder="0" />
  <frame frameborder="0" noresize />
</frameset>

Open in new window
