Default Redirecting a domain to external website?

Is it possible with ISPConfig 3 to redirect a domain to an external website (that isn't setup in ISPConfig).

I can only see a way to setup Alias domains for existing websites in ISPconfig, not external websites.

On an old server system we could do this manually by creating apache virtualhost conf files like this:
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName hosted-domain.abc
Redirect / http://www.external-website.abc

Can ISPConfig 3 manage this?
This is for scenario's where we have clients who manage multiple domains & websites hosted with us, but perhaps 1 or 2 of those domains point to external sites not hosted by us.

The snippet you posted above is the same as if you do theis in ispconfig:

1) Create a new website hosted-domain.abc
2) Enter "http://www.external-website.abc" in the redirect path field on the redirect tab and selecet redirect type "no flag".

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
