check how the website was accessed

I'm not sure if I'm asking this correctly, but we'll be hosting a website on an IIS 7.0 server
I want to know if there's a way that we can determine if it was accessed via a link from another page or if the person typed the URL into their browser.

ie. my page is https://www.domainA.com/index.aspx

on http://www.domainB.com/index.aspx there is a link that links to the above.
they can also access domainA directly ... i want to know if there's a way I can find out.

also note, will most likely be from http to https

thanks.

You can check the HTTP referrer host header for the address of the refering webpage.  If blank it was likely to have been manually entered.
