Re-direct in IIS

Hi,

I have a question if it's possible to re-direct (re-route) a web request in IIS. For example if a user enters www.mysite.com in the browser I would like it to end up in mysite.com.

Is this possible to do? I'm working in IIS on Windows Server 2012.

Thanks for help!

Yes,

This should work:

<rule name="Remove www" stopProcessing="true">
  <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="true" />
  <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
    <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.(.+)$" />
  </conditions>
  <action type="Redirect" url="http://{C:1}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />
</rule>

Hi and thanks for answer,

Where do I set this rule?

You can do this in the web.config in your application:


 <system.webServer>
  <rewrite>
      <rules>
       <!--  put <rule> -->
      </rules>
    </rewrite>

Hi,

I tried the rule but I got an internal server error. This is how I put it in my web.config:
 <system.webServer>
      <security>
        <requestFiltering>
          <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="2147483648"/>
        </requestFiltering>
      </security>
      <rewrite>
        <rules>
            <rule name="Remove www" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="true" />
          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
            <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.(.+)$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Redirect" url="http://{C:1}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />
        </rule>
        </rules>
      
      </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>

Do you have the re-write module installed on the server?

I installed it and applied the rule again. This time I got no error but the redirect doesn't seem to take place. If I enter www.kanal10.se it doesn't rewrite it.

Thanks for help!

Here are some screen shots:
http://www.serverintellect.com/support/iis/url-rewrite-to-redirect-www-iis7/

From there it seems like I may have been off in the pattern match:
<system.webServer>
         <rewrite>
        <rules>
            <rule name="Remove www" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="true" />
          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
            <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^(www\.)(.*)$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Redirect" url="http://{C:1}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />
        </rule>
        </rules>      
      </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
