Is there a way to catch all wildcard subdomains and point them either to default website or somewhere....

Example *.experts-exchange.com will catch everything that is not assigned and is entered...

It may be real simple or it might not be doable

You can create * host entries on Windows 2003 (and 2000) dns

Create a new host (A) record in the DNS zone by rightclicking on the zone host list and selecting new HOST(A) Record. Enter * in the hostname and the IP of the server to receive the wilcard.
