I'm developing a link directory script for a client, but will have permission to give away the code.
It's being built as an SEO directory, and I am doing some very advanced SEO tactics with it (e.g. spoofing subdomains for each category and each listing).
Thing is, for those advanced options webmasters would need to be able to tweak their Linux/Apache boxes.
For example, subdomain wildcards are needed and the httpd.conf file needs tweaking.
So I'd like to get a handle on what percentage of webmasters have this stuff available to them, as if it's not too many, I won't waste time packaging my subdomain code for others to use and will keep it simple.
I would suggest use * pointer for anything.yourdomain.com to point to yourdomain.com/anything and then use the HTTP refferer to detect
. Works for me..!!
The referrer won't always work, the way I'm doing it will (a complex mod_rewrite after the subdomain wild card).
