Our company changed it's name and so the URL for all of our IN HOUSE HOSTED web sites and web applications.

How can I "redirect" www.OLDDomainName.com/Whatever to www.NEWDomainName.com/Whatever?

Some pages are ....com/default.htm and some are ....com/default.aspx.

Then some web applications are virtual directories like, www2.DomainName.com/WebApplication/default.aspx


Both the old and the new URLs point to all the same pages.  We have one web server and one set of web sites.   I just want for when someone browses to OldDomain.com it changes or redirects them to NewDomain.com.  What shows in the address bar is the primary concern.

I tried putting a META permanent redirect "301" in the <head> of a page but it just made an infinite loop since for both URLs it's the same actual page.

Windows Server 2008 R2, IIS 7.5, ASP.Net and plain HTML


Thanks!  :-)

I am not an MS person, hence a link.

Hi,

Thank you for the reply.  I did something similar, but used "URL Rewrite" instead:

It looks like your method would work just as well so I'll credit you with the answer.

Thanks again for the reply.
