Internal web site redirect

I have an internal website running and would like an easy way for my users to be able to access the site rather than having to put the server name etc... currently its http://company-tools/website.

I would like to maybe create a dns entry that will allow then to go to maybe company.com and it redirect internally to that internal address that i have. Is that possible?

I don't think that a DNS entry is possible.  DNS works on the fqdn of the address not the file path.  You should be able to put a simple redirect to the directory.  What web server are you using?

If it's IIS you could use the redirect tool or adjust the web.config file and add the redirect there, this can look something like this (IIS7):

<system.webServer>
    <rewrite>
        <rules>
            <rule name="Root Hit Redirect" stopProcessing="true">
                <match url="^$" />
                <action type="Redirect" url="/website" />
            </rule>
        </rules>
    </rewrite>
</system.webServer>

Open in new window


Replace "redirect" with rewrite if needed.

The redirect tool way:

1- Select your site and click HTTP Redirect in the IIS section (You might need to install this tool first http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7435)
2- Select "Redirect requests to this destination"
3- Write down the directory you want to redirect to. In your case "http://company-tools/website"
4- In the next step, Redirect Behavior you might have to select "Only redirect requests to content in this directory (not subdirectories)", or it might not work, experiment with it ...
