We are an ASP (Application Service Provider) and currently host over 200 applications in ASP and ASP.Net (one for each client). At this time the clients are linking to our web application using absolute URL eg. http://
<domain name>/<folder name>/default.asp(x)
Whenever there is a need to change the folder name (for maintenance purposes) we have to notify all the clients that have been affected to update their URL to point to the right folder name OR we keep the old folder name and redirect it to the new folder (maintenance night mare).
I am looking for a fast, least obstrusive way to create a single page entry system eg. http://
<domain name>/?CID=<unique identifier> which will re-direct the request to proper folder on the web server. If the client attempts to link directly to the folder they will be shown an error message asking them to use the unique identifier.
Remember, all the applications ASP and ASP.NET are individual, mutually exclusive applications.
