    It took me hours to figure this out, but I finally have it working!

    In your vhost.conf and vhost_ssl.conf files for each virtual host (located in /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com/conf)

    Add this code:

    ServerAlias cp.@domain_name@
    Options +FollowSymLinks 
    RewriteEngine on 
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}  !^(www\.)?@domain_name@
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}  ^(cp\.)?([^\.]*)\.com 
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$
    Keep in mind that if this file isn't there, you just need to create it.

    Make sure to replace @domain_name@ with your domain name. You can put this code directly in your .skel/conf files with no changes to the above code so that new domains are already set up this way :)

    The only problem with this code is this line:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(cp\.)?([^\.]*)\.com

    does anybody know how to modify it so that it catches all tld's besides .com?
