Is there a way I can create a friendly url for a site collection? (not a web application, I know how to do that thru central admin)

My site collection name is http://intranet.companyname.com/sites/secure/itdept/public/default.aspx
how do I change it to http://intranet.companyname.com/its/default.aspx

thanks

You can't do the above exactly, but there is a way to use a friendly name.

If it's a one-off you could use an IIS website that redirects to the full URL, this would not maintain the short URL.  yOU COULD ALWAYS USE DNS as well to manage this.

ACH1LLES has pointed you in the right direction for correct planning from the start though.
