    The redirect is only for directories, not for single files.

    Yes, that is what i experienced ;)
    But wouldn't it be better to be able using redirections to a specific file, too?
    I see no other way of doing this - only creating apache directives for the account with rewrite rules in it.

    Normally you do this by a.htaccess file. All common cms systems that need these functions already come with a .htaccess file for that.

    Sure. I do not doubt that :)

    Let's assume we have a Domain www.mycomain.com that belongs to customer X.
    Customer X has no experience with .htaccess or mod rewrite.

    He wants to set up subdomains that redirect like this:
    sub1.mydomain.com -> www.mydomain.com/main.php?action=sub1
    sub2.mydomain.com -> www.mydomain.com/bla.php
    sub3.mydomain.com -> www.mydomain.com/thatsme.html

    I know that you can do all this via httpd directives or .htaccess but that's sort of a problem for customers that can only use the ispc interface, isn't it?
    I could change the ispc code of that installation myself, but I didn't yet understand if there's a reason that you can only redirect co domains to directories in ispc.
