Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
While searching for hosts it seems like some treat subdomains as a regular domains and charge extra/month for each subdomain.
I poured through some posts here and came across threads regarding wildcard dns, mod_rewrite etc.
From what I have gathered using the DNS to route surfers would be considered a "true" subdomain. Using mod_rewrite is kind of a fake out. I also saw a post by littleman on how to modify the httpd.conf file to do this.
So in a nutshell what is the easiest and cheapest way for me to do this?
I'd rather have the power to add subdomains myself.
By using mod_rewrite does it send out a redirect header?
