Hi All,

I would like to remove "www" prefix from my address. For example change www.mydomain.com to mydomain.com and set 301 redirect.
How can i do it in Monox? I found some .NET solutions but this is for standard url rewrite module, i need solution especially for MonoX url rewriter (section <UrlRewrite> in web.config file)

thanks

Hello,

This is a URL rewriting rule you can use to redirect from www.mysite.com to mysite.com for example:

<if header="HOST" match="^(www.mysite.com)$">
  <redirect name="SiteCanonical" url="^(.*)$" to="http://mysite.com$1" />
</if>
Please place this rule at the top of your rewrite section in the web.config.

Regards,
Mario

Hello,

It should set a 301 redirect, however if you wan to be 100% certain you can set the permanent="true" property for example:

<redirect name="SiteCanonical" url="^(.*)$" to="http://test.ie$1" permanent="true" />
Setting this property to false will set a 302 redirect.

Mario

Is this correct ?

<if header="HOST" match="^(http://mydomain.com)$"
<redirect name="SiteCanonical" url="^(.*)$" to="http://www.mymydomain.ie$1" permanent="true" />
</if>
 
    <UrlRewriter>
      <default-documents>
        <document>Default.aspx</document>
      </default-documents>

This would be the correct order:

<UrlRewriter>
<default-documents>
  ...
</default-documents>
<register logger="MonoSoftware.UrlRewriter.Logging.DebugLogger, MonoSoftware.UrlRewriter"/>
 
 <if header="HOST" match="^(www.mydomain.com)$">
  <redirect name="SiteCanonical" url="^(.*)$" to="http://mydomain.com$1" />
</if>
