Permit to redirect desired domain name to the 'domain' of Site app. Useful if you have different domains name for the same website.

1. Add to your settings DOMAINS_ALIAS like this:

DOMAINS_ALIAS = (
    'my-second-domain.com',
    'www.my-second-domain.com',
    'third-domain.com',
    'www.third-domain.com',
)

notice: all these domains are redirected to the domain db entry of Site ID.

2. add all these domains to ServerAlias directive in your vhost apache configuration.

3. enable the middleware by adding to your MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    ...
    'utils.middleware.domainsalias.DomainsAliasMiddleware',
    ...
)

        newurl = "%s://%s%s" % (request.is_secure() and 'https' or 'http', \
                Site.objects.get_current().domain, request.path)
        if request.GET:
            newurl += '?' + request.GET.urlencode()
        return HttpResponseRedirect(newurl)
