Aim: Typing notes.pludoni.de in browser shows the same page as notes.it-jobs-und-stellen.de.

e.g. this Blog is hosted unter notes.it-jobs-und-stellen.de but should be reachable as notes.pludoni.de. The problem was the option ProxyPreserveHost, which sent the domain notes.pludoni.de to the it-jobs-und-stellen.de-Server. The result was that this server delivered a wrong content, because he do not know anything about "notes.pludoni.de" (resulted in Plesk default page).
