QuoteIs this error specific to my account - or is this a site-wide change (as is being reported in the forums)?Is this feature going to be re-enabled? Is it up for discussion? Was it going to be mentioned?I hope so... I would consider wildcards - an "essential feature".Seems a less drastic a solution would be to simply disable it for those who are abusing it, no?
Quote from: jschv6 on March 03, 2012, 06:27:57 AMHi,I just noticed, that it is no longer possible to add wildcard domains.I found them very handy, because I want people to see a custom error page when mistyping a part of the domain.Also I have several services behind my home-IP. This IP changes sometimes and with a wildcard subdomain I only have to set the new IP at two places (IPv6 Tunnel Endpoint and Wildcard Subdomain A entry).I can understand that HE has to disable features that are commonly abused on their free service, but I would be very happy if there would be some way to enable this again.Maybe only for Sages like the IRC connections at the tunnel.Are there any plans for this?I am not going to abuse that, at least not willingly, because I can not even imagine how to abuse wildcard subdomains HuhMaybe someone can enlighten me, just out of curiosity (only if it is not tempting people to do it)You even know my address, because you kindly sent me a free t-shirt, so if I ever abuse a wildcard subdomain you can send a SWAT team to get me Wink
Quote from: DAR2133576 on April 17, 2012, 01:36:51 AMSince their used to redirect nonexistent DNS Records it can be used in whats called Session fixation exploiting. Wildcard cookies can be set by one subdomain that will effect other subdomains. Their is also DNS hijacks and scripting exploits which can be used with that feature. This is why I doubt you would be able to get use of wildcards unfortunately because there will always be evil people who use features to harm others.
