  • Windows Hosting with Word Press

    HI Admins,

    I have a windows Reseller on which i hosted a domain and used WP CMS. The WP files are in the path [rootfolder]/httpdocs/wordpress

    Now,i was able to see the Resellers page when i gave as xyz .com and i was able to see the wordpress page when i gave as www.

    So the support persons over there placed a index.php file in the httpdocs folder which will redirect the www. to www.

    Now the problems iam facing are
    1.My SEO/ Advertising works done are for the site www. and not www. Though its a 301 redirect i would like my user to see just the domain name www.

    2.All the post's URL are like www., but i would like to see it as www.

    The Reseller guys over there said that there is no rewrite mode on windows server at all, it's possible on Linux servers only where apache mod_rewrite module is

    installed and you can rewrite URL as you wish using .htaccess file. So do you guys have a work around for this problem ?

    You can make the use of ISAPI_Rewrite, which is a powerful URL manipulation engine based on regular expressions. It acts mostly like Apache's mod_Rewrite, but is designed specifically for Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS). ISAPI_Rewrite gives you the freedom to go beyond the standard URL schemes and develop your own scheme. It's installed on all of our shared/reseller hosting servers, hence you'd just need to create your rules (based on this app). Please refer to this link for more information : Helicon Tech - IIS modules and ISAPI filters for URL rewriting and search engine optimization
