Development Environment Tip: setting up dns wildcards

Sun, 09/27/2009 - 11:02 — peter

The Problem

So you got a new customer site to do. You want a new host name for the development site (like customername.yourdomain.tld), so you modify your local hosts file OR, if you have any scalability in your setup, you go and add a new CNAME record to your name server setup and all is good, right?

Well, by client #5 this process begins to become annoying and by client #10 you are looking for an alternative method of managing these names.
