I think you're looking at this problem from completely the wrong angle. Why 
does the preview need to sit under their domain name? If that's really what you 
want then you have no option but to do something very very clunky with their 
hosts file, or take over their DNS lookup which is just pure evil and will have 
huge side effects and security implications.

Why can't you simply set the virtual host for their site so it responds to two 
domain names. Firstly their actual domain name, and secondly something like 
theirdomain.com.preview.techsware.in (this would be *.preview.techsware.in in 
your zone file). That way they just need to visit 
http://theirdomain.com.preview.techsware.in/ and they'll see their website.
