Hi,

Where should I configure to allow the following URL of my SharePoint site http://SharePoint/SystemDevelopment into a shorter one like http://dev only ?

Hi,
what will be the aim of this?
Do you want a simple redirect from http://dev to  http://SharePoint/SystemDevelopment
OR
would you like to enable user to use http://dev either
- alongside with  http://SharePoint/SystemDevelopment OR
- instead of  http://SharePoint/SystemDevelopment
Thanks.

- alongside with  http://SharePoint/SystemDevelopment OR
- instead of  http://SharePoint/SystemDevelopment

Hi,
this will only work if SystemDevelopment us a site collection. Then you can create a so called host-named site collection.

ah ok, I thought that this must be done from the IIS setting :-)

Unfortunately not, that would have been the case for the first option with the simple redirect http://dev -> http://SharePoint/SystemDevelopment

Rainer with the Vanity URL type of change, do I need to make DNS changes as well ?
in terms of DNS alias or CNAME

By using the Vanity URL reconfiguration, my understanding is that it uses the IIS by creating the new Virtual Directory, however I cannot create the custom virtual directory to do that because the default SharePoint site is already using port 80.

and also How can the url: http://software is recognizable in the domain ? do I need to make changes in the DNS ?
