    ich want to make something like a subdomainscript.

    My plan is, if you type in domain.tld you get to the main Page. If you type in existing.domain.tld you get to the existing Website. And if you type in blablabla.domain.tld (an not existing subdomain) you get again to the main page.
    The script works with an mysql database and i want to make ist so that each domain is made by the database.

    I hope it is clear what i want to do. If not feel free to ask.
    Now to the problem. I need now a solution to realise that. Can anyone help me?

    good night

    What you could do is make an wildcard CNAME entry in your DNS.
    eg. *.domain.tld CNAME domain.tld

    This way any subdomain.domain.tld address would be forwarded to ISPConfig and if a subdomain exists it will show you the one.

    I don't know if it is possible to do a Wildcard forward in ISPConfig.

    Yes you can.

    In ISPconfig go to the domain > Co-Domains, and create a new domain.
    Use as hostname a *
    Enter in the Domain, the domain you would like to use (domain.tld)

    I have some blogging OS (see sig) setup like this, and it's working great.

    Additionally, you should set mailserver to external for this co-domain with the "*" wildcard.

    So you do not get "junk" mail that is send to any of the domains.
