I mentioned "http://subdomain.", so the context was the web server.

It's mostly the local development server, where I set up different sub-domains to point to different web applications. (application.local.ourdomain.tld)

What you suggest I might do on the live server though, at the moment I just use a wildcard - But for the record, Slashdot doesn't handle www.apple.slashdot.org either.

Every time I set-up a sub-domain for work I always have to tell my boss "http://subdomain." out loud first, in the hope that he'll not prefix "www".

Sometimes he still just does both, then asks me why it isn't working. This results in a lengthy conversation where we're both saying "http colon slash slash" and "www" to each other. Makes me want to stab him in the face.

We don't know one millionth of one percent about anything.

Working...
