How to forward a hosted website

We host several sites for clients and some of these clients we also provide internet access to...WE give them a range of IP addresses. I am fairly new to Linux and I don't quite see how this is all being done. Here is the problem I am faced with. The site in question has a website that is hosted on a machine located on their site instead of here. They are getting ready to go to another hosted solution that will have a different URL entirely. However, they want to leave a forwarder from the current site. I was told that this was controlled by our main Redhat server somehow. In other words, our webserver has forwarded to their ip address/website. Can I place a forwarder on our main web server to the new site for them?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Website forwarding for long addresses can be done in javascript.

Google around for javascript forwarding tips.

Hope this helps!

    So if I understand this correctly, they are migrating websites and they want the original domain to forward to the new domain. It sounds like they need to set a redirector in their default page to redirect to the other domain.
