    URL Question


    Hi all,

    I have a website, if I type my website address in IE as http://yyy.com, when the page loads the address remains in that format. What I want to have happened is to force the url to be in http://www.yyy.com. Any ideas how?

    Thank you

    Exclamation Same Problem ~ Help Needed


    I'm having the exact same issue. I need to have the URL resolve to http://www.[website name].com irregardless of the format actually entered by the user.

    For instance if the user navigates to:
    [website name].com
    www.[website name].com
    http://[website name].com

    they still arrive at http://www.[website name].com.

    Google is a good example of this. I thought about using a server side redirect on the default page, however I want my site to be available for spidering by search engines etc.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    One possibility is some kind of url cloaking through a service like zoneedit.com, I guess.

    There may be some IIS equivalent of Apache's url_rewrite but I don't know what it is.
