URL Rewriting in ASP.NET 1.1 - Any security and server Performance issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • User2145017075 posted


    I am relatively new to URL Re-writing, however I managed to make one. But my webhosting company says they have disabled ISAPI rewrite  because of security and server stability issues. I searched on the net but could not find any information confirming on their saying.

    Is it really the case? are there any aricles describe this?

    Are there any work arround to acheive the same thing? I need to have search engine friendly url's.

    Thanking you in advance.

    ISAPI rewrite is very different from rewriting URLs inside an HttpModule.

    You can rewrite URLs inside aBeginRequest event handler of an HttpModule. There are a number of pre-written modules that already do this, and a google search for "HttpModule URL rewrite" will give you a link to lots of articles and examples on how to do this.
