Google gives me more and more links containing instead of .
It may be worthwhile to exclude this subdomain from indexing?

I guess we should configure the web server to serve a 404 on unconfigured hostnames.

Incorrect links already posted on the forum (perhaps not only on it). Maybe it would be better to redirect for and raise 404 for other hostnames?

301 redirects would possibly be a fix as well -- googlebot would only index the content at the URL that the link redirects to (as opposed to to a 302 where the inverse happens).

Established permanent 301 redirects from -> so existing links work and also so search indexers can correctly map URLs we didn't want out there to the correct ones.
