    How to log forwarded pages?

    Hi all, thanks for looking and any help you can offer.

    I have one website hosted at home on a PC. I have two domain names registered:
    widget.com
    widgets.com

    widget.com is set by godaddy.com DNS settings to forward to widgets.com.

    What I want to know is how many people type in widget.com as opposed to widgets.com. Does anyone know how to log that (since I don't have a hosting account with godaddy)?

    You should be able to parse the logs on your home computer with a program such as AWStats. Do your log files indicate that some hits to widgets.com are referred by widget.com? I'm not exactly sure how DNS forwarders work, so maybe the referrer is retained? If not you may consider hosting both websites on your home PC and setting up widget.com as a parked domain so that you can track hits.

    If its A-record then a 302/301/something via mod_rewrite, possibly check widgets.com and see what HTTP_HOST is hitting it?
