Directing Mistyped Domains

Today I wondered what would occur if someone visited my domain, but mistyped the sub-domain name (i.e. erik.forsbergville.com, instead of eric.forsbergville.com). There are a couple ways to account for this type of user error: The Specific Method If you want to be specific, you can create A Record‘s with your DNS provider that logically direct to the intended sub domain (so in my example above, I would create a new A Record that points “erik.forsbergville.com to eric.forsbergville.com. The Catchall (Wildcard) Method To create an all powerful sub-domain catchall, you simply need to create a wildcard DNS record.  So with my domain host, GoDaddy, I use the Zone Editor to create a new A Record with “*” for the name field and my server IP address for the IP field.

I want it on my GoDaddy account now because I get free email there with my hosting and domain plans! My f-ing domain is there man … I want my username@mac.com saved messages moved – now. See there? Just had a massive type-a attack – right there, literally via my fingertips thru the keyboard out over the Internets and to your internet connection to your high-speed modem (probably) then to a router (still – most have one, nut I realize I am now limiting my audience, yes, however if you are a redneck on dial-up — still — ? You won’t ever read my blog anyhow. I didn’t code it for you bro – you are literally learning e-Bay at this very moment, trying desperately to figure out why it takes so very long to load-up every image) .. [where [ ... ]
