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

For example, I'd like to have foobar.com show FooBar.com

This almost works, but ends up forcing a redirect loop:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?foobar.com\.com 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://FooBar.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Is there any way to do this? I know it's weird, but I'm just curious if it's possible to do without ending up in a loop.

No - a client browser will always lowercase it before sending the Host HTTP header, so it'll always redirect loop.

Thanks, that's exactly the answer I was looking for. I noticed my browser wouldn't keep an upper-case domain name, but I didn't know why. –  TheN3rd Jul 19 '13 at 3:13
