If a request comes to my server which action is taken first DNS or Apache? Let's say my domain is domain.tld and I am using ISPConfig2 In the DNS section of ISPconfig I have domain.tld and www.domain.tld pointing to the IP address of my server. Also, in DNS I have red.domain.tld but it points to the IP on a different server. I have a 301 redirect setup in ISP Manager for domain.tld so that all non-www requests will be permanently redirected to www.domain.tld. I did that by placing the following into "Apache Directives (Optional):" in ISPConfig. Will requests for red.domain.tld be directed to the IP on the different server or will Apache convert all requests for red.domain.tld to www.domain.tld? I would assume that dns would reroute the requests before Apache ever sees them but, I'm not sure.
