Hi there

I have a server set up and am pointing .co.uk domain names to it.

In order to redirect the request when it hits my server, i have added this code to the iisstart page.

If HTTPHost = "www.domain.co.uk" then
    Response.Redirect ("http://www.domain.co.uk/folder")
End If

Now, i would prefer not to show the folder in the line so that pages are seen in the browser as www.domain.co.uk/default.aspx etc.,

Is there a way of doing this.
I am also conscious of the effect of the redirect might have on google rankings.

Any advise, much appreciated.

The server is hosting windows 2000 small business server if this helps.

If HTTPHost = "www.domain.co.uk" then
    server.transfer ("/folder")

It didn't redirect it to the folder i had in mind but simply showed the iisstart page.
