"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm guessing you mean prepend, not append; and the answer depends a lot on what it is you're trying to do.  The most basic answer would be something like...

Dim strNewURL as String = ""
strNewURL = "http://www." & strOldURL

...but it's hard to say without more information.
YZlatCommented:
Try checking whether the string starts with "http://www." first:

If Not strURL.StartsWith("http://www.", StringComparison.InvariantCulture) Then
	strURL = "http://www." & strURL

End if

I recommend using IIS URL Rewrite model.

Here's an article to explain how to do it.
