Hello,

I asked this question yesterday, and got a great solution.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Servers/Apache/Q_21887572.html

My question is:  In the following .htaccess file (that uses mod_rewrite), how
do I allow referrers with the "www" and without it?


RewriteEngine On
# detect the referrer, match on all other domains
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !(http://domain\.com(.*)?$)
# This rule fills all requests with the content of the /denied.html file
RewriteRule ^.*$ /denied.html [L]


Thank you,

Eric

Replace line 3 with:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !(.*\.domain\.com(.*)?$)

No, Nvm. That will catch www.domain.com but not domain.com

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !((\w+):\/\/(([^/:]+\.)|)domain\.com(:\d*)?([^# ]*))

This will allow http://www.domain.com but exclude e.g. http://thedomain.com

The above will allow http ftp://  as well as http://, etc.
But to make it ONLY for http:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !((http):\/\/(([^/:]+\.)|)domain\.com(:\d*)?([^# ]*))
