February 2nd, 2010, 04:44 PM #1Can You Have a dot in a URL Past Domain?
I was sitting on a call today, bored out of my mind, and this question popped up in my head and I am not sure of the answer.
It would have to be done dynamically using rewrite rule in htaccess, but could you have something like the following?

I think I've seen it done by those blackhatters/spammers/scammers.
It's just a name for a directory.
Don't think you need to even bother with htaccess but I could be wrong.
Now do you fall into that category on this bored day?

it's done at the domain level every day like domain.com.ar which is the extension here in Argentina, but that is top level and maybe not what your asking.

I have some of my best thoughts while I'm sitting on the "CALL"
EDIT: Not to derail the thread...
No Freaking Ideas about the dot.......

FYI Our web service datafeed client script produces URLs on some web hosts like...

If you're going to put it into the .htaccess Rewrite pattern matching, you'll want to escape it with a backslash. otherwise a dot matches any single character (including a dot, so it'll work without a backslash, but it risks matching the wrong thing.)

It's just another character like a dash or underscore. As long as you have a folder named cow.com, it shouldn't cause any problems.-Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Characters after the top-level domain name at the end of the address like .html, .htm, etc. make up the file name that contains (or in the case of a dynamic site, temporarily holds) the information.[b]Greg Rice Jr.[/b]
