Hi - what is the easiest way to set up a subdomain like apps.domain.com which I would want to redirect to https://www.google.com/a/domain.com ? I have tried a few things but cannot get it to work. Thank you!

I may have answered my own question. This approach seems to work, although, there may be a better alternative.

Set up the following DNS entry at domain.com

apps.hfadm.org.     IN      CNAME       @

And then create / modify .htaccess as follows:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    Options FollowSymLinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^apps.domain.com
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ redirectToGoogle.html [L]
</IfModule>

And then create redirectToGoogle.html and forward to the desired site

<html>
    <head>
        <META http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=http://yoursitehere.com">
        </head>
</html>
