Hello,

I want visitors who access my site via domain.com to be switched to www.domain.com

Is this best done via IIS or DNS and how would I do it in that system?

Thanks,

Steve

It is typically done at the IIS level with URL Rewrite.  Below is a how-to article describing what you need to do.

No need for URL rewrite in that scenario.
URL rewrite can cause conflict with compression, so if they are not needed avoid them.
just create a second website for domain.com and use the http redirect module

Since the one site ends up bring forwarded to different domains based on the URL, the URL Rewrite (because it has conditions) seems to be the best choice for us. Thank you!
