Setting UseHostName broke links in our web application

We have a web application that generated the following link prior to running UseHostName:

http://www.mycompanysite.org/Biography.aspx?ID=1

After running UsetHostName the links changed to:

http://[server name].[domain name]/Biography.aspx?ID=1

I thinks this can be fixed by using SetHostName instead of UseHostName. Can somebody tell me if this should work?

cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/x/SetHostName www.mysite.org

I'm not sure if  www.mysite.org  will be considered a valid HostName by the adsutil.

Hello,

setHostName and UseHostName only affects the way that IIS responds to certain formed http requests.  There should not be any affect on your web applications.

If it has caused a change in the way that your web application behaves, then it must have something to do with that web application.  Is that something written internally, or by a third party?  In any case, it would be wise to contact the developer and find out why it is doing that - it should not!

Cheers.
