ISAPI Rewrite or 301 redirect?

 10:21 pm on Sep 21, 2008 (gmt 0)

I have a dilemma, I am in the process of database'ing a clients website and they do not want to move hosting accounts. All they have available on their hosting package is ISAPI_Rewrite not a MOD_REWRITE

Is a ISAPI treated the same way in the search engines as a Mod_Rewrite? They have quite an old establised (HTML) website and I am keen to keep the same file structure. The alternative is 301 all the old html pages to the new .asp pages

Whats the general thoughts about this?...

ISAPI Rewrite is a third party application that gives an IIS server the same functionality as .htaccess and mod_rewrite on an Apache server. Yes to 301 redirects, yes to regex based rules, yes to maintaining all your old urls while you introduce asp or aspx functionality.

In short, you're OK - even "very OK" ;)
