We are trying to capture any request that comes into our Apache server with a specific word in the domain and re-direct it to a specific page.

We currently have the following:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   ^(.*)\.hydrochroma\.(.*)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^/(.*)         http://dev.cp.com [R=301,L]

Basically we want anything with hydrochroma to be re-directed. The above rule traps everything and re-directs.

Any feedback will begreatly appreciated.

You can simplify the rule a bit:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} hydrochroma [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?.* http://dev.cp.com [R=301,L]

Open in new window

Really, it should work as-is.  Can you light up your RewriteLog, and paste the entries for a single attempt?
