htaccess question: is this correct? - El Forum - 05-25-2008

I'm testing my server on the implementation of wildcard DNS. I'd like to know if these conditions in the htaccess do what they're supposed to. If I'm correct, any request for a subdomain on scripto.nl should redirect to www.google.com. Right?:

Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.scripto\.nl?$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.scripto\.nl?$

RewriteRule ^$ http://www.google.com

codex, yeah, that's the idea. It could be cleaned up some though.

Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.scripto\.nl$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^\.]+)\.scripto\.nl$

RewriteRule ^$ http://www.google.com

It was basically only a sample to see if the redirect would work. My host activated wildcard DNS and presto, the code worked. Now on to the real htaccess.
