Create a local DNS alias

view story

http://serverfault.com – Is it possible to create a local DNS alias? For example I would like that every request to: 123.com is locally routed to 456.com (like it would be for 123.com CNAME 456.com). I know this is not possible with /etc/hosts, but are there other ways or external tools that do the trick? Thanks (HowTos)
