Currently we have dev, test and uat for non-prod environments. And test and uat are going through Akamai and use their Forward Rewrite cloudlet to determine which server to go to.
Now we have a new project. The project team asks separate environments from BAU, so it wouldn't impact the BAU work. They proposed to use dev2, test2 and uat2, but to be able to use Akamai with these new domains we have to do a lot of works, such as create new configs, register new certificates, copy all the rules... and also DNS change, firework change...
I am thinking to still stick to the existing URL, but create a clone site. So for example, under test.XXX.com.au, we have 2 versions of sites: V1 and V2. So is there a way the IIS could determine to pass the request to test.XXX.com.au\V1 or test.XXX.com.au\V2? By default it always goes to V1, but by adding some information, such as something in the header, IIS would know which version to go to. And the URL would always be test.XXX.com.au.
