Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

wo, is there a way to create subdomains only through a php file ?

like create a function call createsubdomain($username) or something?

that would really be helpful in the sense that as soon as a user registers himself on a website, he gets to access hisname.thewebsite.com to access his full profile

thanks for replues
