National domains redirect

Hi guys,

I'm hosting some domains on my dedicated server. I'm using Apache to host web sites. One of my costumers asked me to host different national domains and a dot com. He wants to use this kind of redirect pattern: -> ->, =>

I guess I have to use the apache rewrite engine... I tried and it works but I would like to implement something elegant and not a dozen of different VirtualHost's directives with the relative rewrite rule.

Any idea?

An idea

Wouldn't ServerAlias directives in the base VirtualHost suffice? That is, rather than having "a dozen of different VirtualHost's directives", you'd simply add something along the lines of:
to your <VirtualHost> section. Furthermore, you could put your RewriteRules in .htaccess.


apache, domains, locale
