IES spy sayís Iíve got to change the IP address of mysite.com and then use code to redirect to www.mysite.com. Is this the only way yo do it in IIS5? That sounds a bit scary, changing the I.P address..
Can I do this DNS, i have full access to my DNS?
I really need a straight easy to follow explanation on this.
Anyone help please?
Just create a website with a default.asp file with script:
So i have to change the IP address? Not really viable as the site is in all search engines, a new IP will course alsorts of problems with them?
This is the first time i've had to set this up and if the clients website has to start a fresh in the search engines i'm hung, drawn and diced into tiny pieces.
Is there no other way i can create this?
I know how to do a redirect in code, i am asking to do a redirect from example.com to www.example.com, at any stage
The DNS points both example.com and www.example.com to the same I.P address in IIS. To use this code, as your correctly mention above, i would need to set up a new 'dummy' website in IIS with a new I.P address, so when someone omits the www it will go to this new site and then use the code mentioned to redirect to the correct www site. This as i see it, needs a new I.P address for a 'dummy' website, which i desperatly want to avoid. So can this be done without a 'dummy' website?
Have I understood the problem correctly?
