Hi, I don't know if this is possible. I would like to allow users who create a Group on my social network (I'm using Pinax), to specify their own Domain name for that Group. So even though my site is www.aaa.com, I want to let them be able to specify their Group as www.bbb.com

Can this be done painlessly by the user, and w/o manual involvement from my side every time a user creates a Group wanting to use their own Domain name?

I currently am hosting the app with you, if that helps to know.

But please help or provide resources to read up on. I'd really appreciate it.

Hi,

With heavy customization like this there's no such thing as painless. ;) You could probably script this up in Python fairly easily giving users a button that edits your apache2/conf/httpd.conf adding a new virtualhost and creates a new pinax project that they are able to work with, but I don't know of any actual resources that give any info on the exact how to do this.
