mod_pointer is an Apache module for making domain redirects easy - the known service of many hosting providers that lets a domain point to your webpage on another server.

The configuration part of the mappings are handled in either a MySQL or Postgresql database or a NDBM or SDBM db file, so it's easy to build a webbased interface for letting users change it on their own.

How to install and configure mod_pointer is described in the INSTALL and pointer.conf files in the distribution.
