Im developing a web application whereby a customer can signup and create their own website instantly.
Their website will be in the format - customername.mydomain.com
This will be addressed by setting a wildcard DNS so that any subdomains get directed to the website IP address (or rather a "website" application that will drive all these customer sites.
Ive developed the core site where the customer will register which will be www.mydomain.com
Now i need to create a separate "website" project that will drive the customer's sites by checking the subdomain to populate content, styling etc...
Within Visual Studio would the "customer website files" need to be a project within my main site or could it be separate?
Im not sure how i would redirect the customer sub-domains to the "customer website files" project? Im guessing a normal sub-domain wildcard direction to the main IP address would target my main site at www.mydomain.com which isnt what i want.
How would i best structure this and get it working as i want?

files will usually get to be large (based on the number of users), so when you do a deployment of the code, you do not want to copy content again. The content should only be copy/updated as changes are done to the branded site. This will happen very often
as customer will keep adding banners etc.
hope it helps.
