An older website has address site.com, but now we need the address site.net to point to site.com as well. I understand we need to create a dummy web in IIS for site.net, and on Properties of the dummy web, tab Documents, one can choose to redirect to site.com. However, I'd still need to figure some issues as follows:
1. Is the dummy site a must? (can such redirection be done without the dummy site - IIS only)
2. Properties for the dummy site in IIS don't make much sense - one should just leave the defaults?
3. In this case above one should choose "Permanent redirection" I guess. Then a user going to "site.net" will actually get to the default page of site.com. But what happens if a user tries to get to "site.net/page2.html"? Where page2.html is a page in the root folder of site.com.
