I think what you are refering to is commonly called URL rewriting. You need to check the request value in Application_BeginRequest in global.asax, which could be something like http://localhost/MyRenamedPage.aspx

You then use the Context.RewritePath( redirectString ); method to send the user to another resource as chosen by yourself - such as http://localhost:1156/WebSite3/mine/TestUrl.aspx

The Test.UrlRewriting.UrlRewriter.GetRedirectString( Request.Url.ToString(), Request.QueryString.ToString() ); method call in my code below is just a custom check for a predefined mapped URL.

Here you can see a good tutorial on url rewriting http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/


Fig.1
 
void Application_BeginRequest(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        //// Check if path is an alias for a real page. If so, rewrite path,
        //// else, allow user to continue to requested resource.
 
 
        
            string redirectString = Test.UrlRewriting.UrlRewriter.GetRedirectString( Request.Url.ToString(), Request.QueryString.ToString() );
 
            if ( redirectString != null )
            {
                Context.RewritePath( redirectString );
            }
 
    }
