If the domain is not yours there is no way to like.. not point it to your server, however you can point it to a serperate page by using VirtualHost's

Do this by doing the following, create a folder with a desired html / php file inside saying that the page is not existing or whatever

then edit your VirtualHosts file, let's say your using apache, that file would be in the following directory: /etc/apache2/sites-available/ open the file called default and add the following code:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /www/example2
