asked on

redirecting user to the correc domain based on the country of access

I have two portal omvedstore.com and omvedstore.in hosted seperately on two shared servers.

Case 1: Now if a user from India tries to access omvedstore.com he is redirected to omvedstore.com.

Case 2: If a user tries to access omvedstore.in form overseas ( any county but india) he gets redircted to omvedstore.com

In order to do so I have put the code snipsets on both the server, which works well for case 1. However it fails for case 2

Below is the code

Code in Omvedstore.com ( checks is the user is from india . If yes sends him to omvedstore.in else to omvedstore.com ). This works well

string ipAddress = Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];

                    ip_to_country data = stmngr.GetIPtoCountry(ipAddress);
                    if (data != null)
                    {
                        if (data.TwoCountryCode.ToLower().Trim() == ("IN").ToLower().Trim())
                        {
                            if (ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["IndiaSiteUrl"] != null &&
                            !String.IsNullOrEmpty(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["IndiaSiteUrl"].ToString()))
                                Response.Redirect(String.Format("{0}", ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["IndiaSiteUrl"].ToString()));
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            Response.Redirect(String.Format("{0}", ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["IndiaSiteUrl"].ToString()));
                        }
                    }


Code in omvedstore.in ( checks if user is from overseas and redirects him to omvedstore.com . This doesnt work. The user stays on omvedstore.in )

string ipAddress = Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];
                    ip_to_country data = stmngr.GetIPtoCountry(ipAddress);
                    if (data != null)
                    {
                        if (data.TwoCountryCode != "IN")
                        {
                            if (ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["GlobalSiteUrl"] != null &&
                            !String.IsNullOrEmpty(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["GlobalSiteUrl"].ToString()))
                                Response.Redirect(String.Format("{0}?cntCode=US", ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["GlobalSiteUrl"].ToString()));
                        }
                    }


Please let me know what the issue might be.

Else you can suggest me a better code as well

This is not an IIS issue.

You are doing the redirect in .net so you need soem .net experts to look at this.

I have requested attention ofr you and a mod shoudl add this to the .net groups.
