I have a website which is split into two, as there are two distinct parts of the business. I would like each to have its own domain name. The second domain name is parked on the server, so whether a visitor enters www.domain1.com or www.domain2.com, they are directed to the "normal" homepage.
I had thought that this would be a simple case of putting a 301 redirect on the server, but that doesn't work for some reason.
My host has suggested .htaccess rewrites, but I don't know if this would work (and have no idea how to do it anyway).
Can anybody help me, please?

My host has been looking into this for me too, but we still have no answers. Can anybody help, please?

Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately, my host and I have tried that and it doesn't work.
In their words: "I tried adding rewrites to your .htaccess but it follows that if your redirecting the root to a subfolder, and your parking a domain onto the route, the parked domain will point to the same place as the main domain."
Is there any other way around this?
