In other words the clientsite.com would be the only thing that should be referenced to /clientsite. mysite.com shouldn't be associated with it at all because it is only the domain name where the physical folder resides.
Like I said maybe I am thinking about this too much, but if someone goes to www.mysite.com/clientsite they will see the client site or if they visit www.clientsite.com they will see the same site. (URL masking applies to his domain name forward so the physical folder name /clientsite won't be seen. I wouldn't want to block the /clientsite folder from being indexed because those will be his physical pages...any ideas to not index mysite.com/clientsite? Thanks...time for some sleep :)

Looking at all the folders in the document root "/" most of them are assigned to a physical domain name. The few that are not assigned to any domain and are just sitting in the root can be accessed like 18.104.22.168/foldername This should work to point his domain name to the folder like this, or I can explore the specific directory options once the domain is pointed to my hosting name servers when the switch is ready to happen.

If you have domain1.foo, then to add a new site, don't map the document root to /var/www/sites/domain1.foo/clientsite/ - instead - map it to /var/www/sites/clientsite/
Hope that makes sense.
i.e. there is no good reason that one document root should be within another document root - move it higher in the server directory hierarchy until you put it beside the document root of 22.214.171.124.
I found out that what I need to do is to add this domain to my control panel as an "external" domain which my control panel allows. From there I can point this external domain to the folder on my hosting, and the rest is simply changing the DNS info with register.com.
I appreciate your advise and help.
