You can also do this via a PHP script, which is what I do. I have 5 URLs
all going to the same site (500 megs disk space). I parse the subdomain,
and re-driect to the appropriate sub-directory.
Actually, you don't even need to parse the URL for sub-domain. Just search
for the "yourname.mysite.com" as a string in the database and then
re-direct. You don't needt vitual hosts to accomplish this. HOWEVER, you
do need access to your DNS so that you can create A and CNAME records

Subject: [PHP] implement yourname.mysite.com redirection
I'd like to implement a system whereby people have a subdomain on my site
I've been reading the apache docs that say you can do this via virtual
Can I do it so 'yourname' can be anything - where all requests are sent
to the same page where i can parse the uri and query a db based on
any reason why my isp might be reluctant to do this.I'm presuming I can't
do it via .htaccess?
as a side note what are the affects of this kind of redirection as far as
go.I've heard that doing this kind of thing on a 404 page is a bad idea.
