A common goal in web application development is creating subscription based application, where users can use their domains.
- Basecamp allows you to manage your project, and gives users as subdomain like xyz.grouphub.com
- Blogger goes a step further, and allows you to use arbitrary domains with your domain, using Cnames.
django-subdomains is an application which makes both these possible, and allows you to charge the users using paypal.
