    * Reroute Unkown Subdomains

    Ok, I want to reroute all unkown subdomains to my main site. Lets say some typed in and sharpie wasn't a valid subdomain. Is there any way to add a DNS record to forward this to

    I thought I could add a new A record of * and use the IP Address, but it doesn't seem to work. I have been pulling my hair out. What I am trying to do is setup the multi-user addon for wordpress...I know the code needs changed with wordpress to make this rewrite work, but I would still like my unknown subdomains to route to my main domain.

    Your help is appreciated

    If you add the wildcard DNS * you also have to add the following to the Apache VirtualHost:

    ServerAlias *
