    Well, first, you get a 0.2-point deduction for not asking anything
about PHP, but since it's Friday and the folks here are about the most
creative and intelligent bunch of minds on any mailing list (call be
biased, I don't care), you still qualify for a medal.

    If it were me, and this is an Apache box, I would....

        * Add a ServerAlias somenewdomain.com directive to the
somedomain.com VirtualHost entry
        * Add a mod_rewrite rule to your .htaccess file in the web
root of somedomain.com:

            RewriteEngine On
            RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} somedomain\.com$
            RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://somenewdomain.com/$1 [QSA,L,R=301]

    Remember to modify your rewrite stuff to be compatible with the
present SSL status of the request, and do whatever you need to do with
regard to any subdomains or whatever.
