With the svr-misc1 patch the "Host" header will be available in the request. For example, if I'm browsing to www.example.com:8080/foo/bar, then

  (alref req!headers "Host")
will be "www.example.com:8080".

I can then extend respond to take action for a particular host

  (extend respond (req) (begins (alref req!headers "Host") "www.")
    ...)
such as by issuing a redirect, something like:

  (extend respond (req) (begins (alref req!headers "Host") "www.")
    (prn "HTTP/1.0 302 Moved")
    (prn "Location: example.com/foo/bar")
    (prn))
sorry I haven't tested this; you'll want to look at what you actually get with a tool like curl to make sure that it's right.

correction: the "Location" header should include the full URL including the http: or https:. Also you may want a 301 "moved permanently"...:

  HTTP/1.0 301 Moved Permanently
  Location: http://www.example.org/foo/bar

Thanks aw. I'll do my best to take it from there. It's appreciated. I've so little experience with this.

Do post again as soon as you run into any problems or get stuck anywhere. (It will not only help you, but also the people who come after you who need the same thing you do).

Will do. It might take a a few days to get to this, but I'll post my problems, and hopefully, progress. :)
