I asked the Bing AI chatbot this question:
There are a few ways to redirect from a subdomain to a domain, but still show only the subdomain in the URL bar. One of them is to use a reverse proxy, which is a server that acts as an intermediary between the client and the origin server. A reverse proxy can forward requests from the subdomain to your domain, and return the responses back to the client, without revealing the actual origin server’s address.
To set up a reverse proxy, you will need to have access to the DNS settings of the subdomain, and a web server that can handle reverse proxying, such as Apache or nginx. You will also need to configure your web server to accept requests from the subdomain, and to forward them to your domain. You can find some examples of how to do this in the web search results¹².
Another option is to use a white label service, which is a third-party platform that allows you to customize and host your web application under a different domain or subdomain. A white label service can take care of the DNS settings, SSL certificates, and hosting for you, so you don’t have to worry about setting up a reverse proxy or managing your own server. You can find some examples of white label services in the web search results³⁴.
I hope this helps you understand how to serve a white label version of your web application from a subdomain of your client’s domain. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask me.

Is Bing right about this? And if so, is there a way to set this up with Galaxy?
