Shared hosting Rewrite and Spiders

Discussion in 'Apache' started by OnTop, Jul 18, 2004.

    Hi to all

    I need a solution –and need it bad… :)

    I'm looking for Hosting solution that will help the spiders visit all my sites pages.
    My web site will run on IIS because my web programmer knows only ASP .
    I can't pay for my own server, only for shared hosting.


    1 –IIS Rewrite programs can work on a shared hosting server for multiple sites ?
    (Where and how to configure the file to my site ? :confused:

    2- If you know any Hosting Company that have IIS Rewrite for Shared hosting servers …-please let me know.

    3- Do you think I should give that idea a way and just find a web programmer that knows Php, and work through the .atacesses file ?

    The sites will have some free forums and a shop…so lots of dynamic pages must be there – unless you have any suggestions


    Thanks

    Hi,

    there is a threat here cheap hosting check it out (please use search).

    If you have your own domain name any provider will have the apropriate routing for your domain. Just make it clear what you want. E.g, I want
    mydomain.com to resolve to www.mydomain.com always and using a 301 redirect.

    ASP, PHP what flavor doesn't really matter as long as it works is smooth and visitors like it.

    If you feel later you want to change there are converters to from asp to php etc.

    Very few ISP's will feature the equivalent of mod_rewrite under IIS. Mainly because it's a paid addition that's rarely necessary - given it's readily available with Apache etc for free.

    You'll find converters that'll work with asp > php but the results always need a touch up.

    Id be inclined to go with PHP. :)

    I'm neither an ASP person nor an IIS expert but I thought something like

    <%@ Language=VBScript %>
    <%
    Dim sURL
    sURL = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST")
    Select Case sURL
    Case "domain.com"
    response.status="301 moved permanently"
    Response.Redirect http://www.domain.com
    End Select
    %>

    in your index page or any page would simply cure this.......

    Pretty sure if you check the internet you'll find a good solution.
    For such things G is still the best starting point.
