Url in c# razor webpage

Hi.

I want my page to have the urlstructure like this:
www.domain.com
www.domain.com/categoryname
www.domain.com/categoryname/product
how does it work. It seems like there need to be a psyical file like:
www.domain.com/category/catogoryname
www.domain.com/product/productname
where category and product is .cshtml files.

Are you writing a Web Forms or MVC application (or a Web Site project)?

Just to be absolutely sure:  When you say "Web Site", you created your project like this, yes?

Well Web Sites don't use the routing engine that MVC comes with, so they more or less work like traditional web pages. Short of writing your own custom module, or *maybe* importing one of the MVC modules, I think URL rewriting would probably be the easiest route to go. I would start at the official ASP.NET web site for more information:

http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/url-rewrite-module

The gist of it will be that you put your simplified URLs in your Razor--probably by hand rather than through the default helpers; or perhaps you can write a helper--and you set up your rewrites to manipulate these URLs into what the web server expects to see.

Ok. I´ve tried in global asa, but gets an error:  
Mente du: Typen 'ASP.Page Default Cshtml' nedarves ikke fra 'System.Web.UI.Page'.
Type 'ASP._Page_default_cshtml' not inherited from 'System.Web.UI.Page'.


void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes);
    }

    void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)
    {
        // redirects
        routes.MapPageRoute("hello", "hello", "~/default.cshtml");
    }

I don't think that will work because you're attempting to mix MVC and Web Site architectures. It may, but I wouldn't know where to begin in order to make it work. Someone else might.

Ok. So it´s not possible to make the routes to files in folders?
It only work if the name is a file in main path?

I'm saying that I don't believe you can use anything to do with routes because you are not working in an MVC project.
