this is very old-fashioned and unreliable syntax, use this instead:

I don't understand. Isn't that exactly what you want, redirect all traffic 
for www.tobyhouse.com to cms.tobyhouse.com?

Ah, you have several virtual hosts on it and all of them get redirected to 
cms.tobyhouse.com? That's the result of the wrong virtual host syntax you 
use. Use name-based virtual hosts and it will work.

Why don't you solve this at dns level? Wouldn't that be much "cleaner"?
