  • you can use a temporary page such as default.aspx in the root directory and can use meta tag as follows; default.aspx will be called by default by IIS and hence will redirect to the url provided in meta tag

    <META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="0; URL=/sites/main/default.aspx">

  • Hi,

    if you are using ECM you could also use the Redirect WebPart by putting it on the page and setting the redirect rule on it.
