So you want to redirect example.eu5.org to Example.NET?

This example will redirect example.eu5.org, and any 'specific page' to Example.NET:

E.g.
http://example.eu5.org -> http://example.net
http://example.eu5.org/page1.htm -> http://example.net/page1.htm
http://example.eu5.org/page2.htm -> http://example.net/page2.htm

Note: This method will produce a 404 if a page/file exists on example.eu5.org and not onexample.net

Add to .htaccess:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.eu5.org [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://example.net/$1 [L,R=301]

As posted above, you can redirect using the above information. This implies that you have the new domain already setup and running.

If you're looking to "change" the domain though, and not do a redirect, you'll actually need to register that domain, and point it to the proper nameservers and add the proper values on the hosting service as well, in other words is not accomplished using .htaccess file.
