Hi All,

Lets say I have the following URL..

www.mysite.com/helloworld

What I need to do is to rewrite or redirect this URL to

www.mysite.com/site/default.aspx?site=helloworld

helloworld could potentially be any alias that has been added to a my database so it needs to cater for handling any alias dynamically.

for example...

www.mysite.com/helloworld

to...

www.mysite.com/site/default.aspx?site=helloworld

Can anyone suggest how I can achieve this?

Thanks,

Rit

Hi,

there are many ways to do this,
you can use your own code to do that
http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/02/26/tip-trick-url-rewriting-with-asp-net.aspx
http://weblogs.asp.net/owscott/archive/2010/01/26/iis-url-rewrite-hosting-multiple-domains-under-one-site.aspx
and if you are using iis 7 or later then you can use its builtin features too for url rewriting

http://blogs.iis.net/bills/archive/2008/05/31/urlrewrite-module-for-iis7.aspx

and using iis features is more recommended way
Thanks
