My specifically named subdomains resolve to their targetted applications ok.

How do I catch requests to subdomains that don't exist (yet / mistyped)?

I don't think I want a Wildcard Subdomain - unless it is overridden by the presence of named domains.

New user to Webfaction, so I might have missed the obvious!

Thanks.

A wildcard subdomain is overridden by named subdomains, so that's what you should use. Just add the wildcard as a new subdomain, then assign it to a site along with whatever app you want the site to serve.

Great, that has fixed it. I should have looked more closely at the hits I got with an early search 'wildcard subdomain' - they seemed to suggest a wildcard subdomain was to be avoided, or suggesting a Support Ticket was required.
