    I am running couple of sub-domains via our main domain: http://www.mydomain.in
    Sub-domains in use:
    http://forums.mydomain.in
    http://gallery.mydomain.in


    I am having some serious issues with this domain as follows:

    1. Serps + Guests are able to get to my sub-domains from following URLs as well:
    www.mydomain.in/forums/somepage
    forums.mydomain.in/somepage
    000.000.000.000/forums/somepage
    This is creating lot of dupe content, i want to fix this problem, with a 301/permanent re-direct (without loosing any rankings or getting penalties)

    2. I am running a forum software script, any user typing a wrong URL or trying to access any improper location should to be re-directed to the root. I want to achieve following if a user tries to access:
    forums.mydomain.in/showthread.php?t=1233 which does not exists (reason got deleted)
    should be re-directed properly to forums.mydomain.in


    3.
    There are many pages indexed in Google and Yahoo via our Site IP Address as well for example:
    000.000.000.000/forums/somepage
    I want to re-direct such pages to forums.mydomain.in/somepage

    4. While trying to re-direct users from 404 URLs on forum, entire .CSS and image paths appear to be invalid, is there a possible solution for re-directing users from 404 pages to root properly?


    This are my .htaccess files:
    This are the .htaccess files on my domain currently as follows:
    ########################################
    #http://www.mydomain.in/.htaccess#
    ########################################
    ErrorDocument 400 /
    ErrorDocument 401 /

    RewriteRule ^(gallery|forums)(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}$1 [R=301,L]
    #
    #Re-Direct users coming to forums and gallery via IP Address in SERPs index to proper location

    1. Please check the above codes those are working perfectly fine on my domain currently, if you can further provide some more optimizations if needed please let me know.

    2. Will i face any problems in future/present using those .htaccess codes? I dont wish to loose my listings/rankings.

    3. I dont want to loose the indexed contents via IP Address (lakhs of pages indexed via IP) and also via improper domain handling.
    i.e., www.mydomain.com/forums/ (lakhs of pages indexed via improper domain URL)
