htaccess: How to redirect most but not all website links

I need to redirect most links of my website, including the home page, to a domain with a different domain prefix. But I need to NOT redirect all links that include a specific directory following the domain in the URL. Here's what it looks like:

All links from "" must redirect to "" EXCEPT for all links that begin with "".

What is the htaccess code that will do this, assuming it can be done?

RewriteCond {REQUEST_URI} !^administrator [NC]
RewriteCond {HTTP_HOST} ^admin\.domain\.com [NC]
RewriteRule .*{REQUEST_URI}

Open in new window

Depending on your configuration, it may be necessary to use {SERVER_NAME} rather than {HTTP_HOST}
