Re: [vox-tech] dns, apache question

Easy.  Let's say you want www.charlesmclaughlin.com to point to

   1. Go to www.mydomain.com (yes, go to http://www.mydomain.com/).
   2. Sign up for their free service.
   3. Buy charlesmclaughlin.com.  Register mydomain.com's
      DNS servers as the NS servers.
   4. Use mydomain.com's standard forwarding service to forward
      www.charlesmclaughlin.com to www.somecompany.com/~charles
