I mentioned in a previous post about finding it harder to figure out redirects in web.config when compare to HTACCESS.  I did figure out how to do a redirect in web.config and thought I should share.

I did a Google search and found many references.  The best articles were Redirect Your URL Using IIS 7 and ASP.NET Web.config and IIS 7.0 and URL Rewrite, make your Web Site SEO.

It took a little trial and error but finally got my web.config to work.  Here is a sample for reference.

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
<rule name=”Redirect for ML2″ stopProcessing=”true”>
<match url=”.*” />
<add input=”{HTTP_HOST}” pattern=”^ml2solutions.com$” />
<action type=”Redirect” url=”https://ml2solutions.com/{R:0}” redirectType=”Permanent” />
