I have a server with about 2000 domains on it pointing to same folder.
I put an include file with the domain list into a virtual host entry.
Do I need to make a second include file for www.sales.com wwww.sales2.com etc.. or is there a better way to do this to avoid redundant data and a waste of RAM for apache to load a file twice as large?
I do have access to the dns records if that’s a better option.
Apache cannot know to serve the hostname unless you put it in its configuration somehow.
If you don’t intend to serve a site on the other hostname, then you can simply let it go to the default virtual host and get a 403/404, or you can create a new virtual host that does WWW redirection.
But regardless, you have to decide how these requests should be handled, and then tell Apache about it.
