Hi all,

I have an issue where I want someone to be able to type http://database.h******s.co.uk and for it to take them to database.h******s.co.uk:8001 I cannot see that I can create and A record to do this so was wondering how I could do this in IIS.

I also have mail. and a few others so need to be able to differentiate between them.

Sorry it is not the best description.

The only way I can think of doing this is to have a default document at  http://database.h******s.co.uk which has a redirect in it  to take the user to  http://database.h******s.co.uk:8001

You could create cname record in dns - then you have to put database name (or different name) in browser and it all should be OK

Hi,

If you want to do it from IIS then you can easily do it thru IIS url redirection. Please refer the following url for the same:

IIS 6
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/6b855a7a-0884-4508-ba95-079f38c77017.mspx?mfr=true

IIS 7

With the IIS redirect I can see that working but at the moment database. and mail. actually point to the same public IP in the DNS. Would I then need to have seperate public IPs for each subdomain or can IIS tell which one the request was for?

Hi,

If you are redirecting http://database.h******s.co.uk website to database.h******s.co.uk:800 to then IIS url redirection only do redirection of website.

<b>Would I then need to have seperate public IPs for each subdomain or can IIS tell which one the request was for?</b>
You can setup website/sub domain on same IP and can redirect your subdomains. But for setting up website on same IP you have to follow the steps available in my accepted following post url:
