<p>A variation:</p> <pre>import socket hostname = socket.gethostname().replace('-', '_').split('.') while True: try: exec 'from host_settings.%s import *' % '_'.join(hostname) break except ImportError: hostname = hostname[:-1] </pre> <p>Lets you use shorter names - for example, mysite.py for mysite.com.au, or www_mysite.py for www.mysite.com.</p>
