  == Using Virtual Hosts ==
+ Use the Redirect directive inside a VirtualHost block to force browsers to redo a request
with a new host name.
+ Remember that the first listed VirtualHost will serve all requests that match no ServerName
or ServerAlias.  By using a Redirect in this host, you can assure that any non-matched names
will also be transfered to the Canonical host.
  NameVirtualHost *:80
  <VirtualHost *:80>
-   # The first-listed <VirtualHost> is the default host that catches all the
-   # names specified in its ServerName/ServerAlias, plus all the names
-   # that are not listed in any other <VirtualHost>, and redirects
-   # them to the canonical <VirtualHost> below.
    Redirect permanent /
