URL Rewrite Hosting with ASPHostCentral.com

clock June 13, 2010 06:53 by author Administrator

IIS URL Rewrite 2.0 enables Web administrators to create powerful rules to implement URLs that are easier for users to remember and easier for search engines to find. By using rule templates, rewrite maps, .NET providers, and other functionality integrated into IIS Manager, Web administrators can easily set up rules to define URL rewriting behavior based on HTTP headers, HTTP response or request headers, IIS server variables, and even complex programmatic rules. In addition, Web administrators can perform redirects, send custom responses, or stop HTTP requests based on the logic expressed in the rewrite rules.


Define powerful rules to transform complex URLs into simple and consistent Web addresses


URL Rewrite allows Web administrators to easily build powerful rules using rewrite providers written in .NET, regular expression pattern matching, and wildcard mapping to examine information in both URLs and other HTTP headers and IIS server variables. Rules can be written to generate URLs that can be easier for users to remember, simple for search engines to index, and allow URLs to follow a consistent and canonical host name format. URL Rewrite further simplifies the rule creation process with support for content rewriting, rule templates, rewrite maps, rule validation, and import of existing mod_rewrite rules.


Easily replace Web application URLs to produce user and search engine friendly results

URL Rewrite permits Web administrators to easily replace the URLs generated by a Web application in the response HTML with a more user friendly and search engine friendly equivalent. Links can be modified in the HTML markup generated by a Web application behind a reverse proxy. URL Rewrite makes things easier for outbound response content and headers rewriting with outbound rewrite rules that work with HTTP request and response headers and with IIS server variables


Seamless integration with existing IIS features that improve management, performance, and troubleshooting

URL Rewrite is tightly integrated with IIS Manager for better management. In addition, URL Rewrite supports both user-mode and kernel-mode caching for faster performance. URL Rewrite also supports Failed Request Tracing for enhanced troubleshooting of application logic execution

VS 2010 Hosting :: Preparing a Host server for VS2010 web publishing

clock June 10, 2010 06:55 by author Administrator

Visual Studio 2010 (VS2010) has some wonderfully integrated features for building and deploying web sites. The VS team has finally made it easy to get your web site onto someone else's Host server. But what if you want to implement a Host server and allow developers/customers easy access to your server? How do you do it?  You have questions, we have answers.

ASPHostCentral.com offers the Visual Studio 2010 hosting to all our new customers. You can always start from our Standard Plan hosting plan (from @$4.99/month) to get this start using the Visual Studio 2010 service. Should your requirement changes in the future, you can always request for an upgrade without causing any downtime. Remember, everything is just one-click away from your mouse! So, why wait longer? Please register your interest here


In Visual Studio 2010 (and in VS2008 as a separate download), the web developer can quickly deploy the website by using the Publish Web  feature. To publish a web, generally the developer would create a Configuration, add in the proper web.config transforms for his server-specific settings, right-click on the web project, and select Publish. The resulting dialog looks something like the one presented below. But what does the server need to support in order to allow web publishing from Visual Studio? 


Enter the Web Deploy Tool

To accept web publishing your server must be running IIS and have installed the Web Deploy tool 1.1 or later. The Web Deploy tool is supported on both 32-bit and 64-bit servers and is pretty simple to install.
1. If you haven't done so already, install the
Microsoft Web  Platform installer. This application makes installing IIS modules (like the Web Deploy tool) a snap!
2. Install the Web Deploy tool appropriate for your server (32-bit or 64-bit).
3. More installation instructions can be found here
4. Once installed the only "gotcha" that you may hit is that the Web Deployment Agent Service is not immediately started. To start this service Please do the following:
    - On the server, click Start |
Run
    -
Type in services and hit
enter
    -
Search for
Web Deployment Agent Service
    - Right-click
on the service and select
Properties
    -
Change the Start-up Type to Automatic (or Automatic delayed start)
    - Click the Start button on the dialog to start the service immediately
    - Click OK to save your changes


Configuring a Website for Publishing

In order to allow a user to publish to a website, a couple items need configuration. This includes setting up the website and the user(s) that will be allowed to publish to the site


Setting up the website

Setting up the website in IIS7 works the exact same way as normal. Run IIS Manager and create a new website. As always, make sure the Application Pool account has access rights to the website directory


Setting up the users

The next step involves making sure the users have access to the website directory.  The user accounts are Windows accounts, and they will need read/write privileges to the actual website directory. In windows explorer, navigate to the website directory and make sure the appropriate users have permissions


Publishing to the Server

Once the website is setup and the users have been given permission, you are now ready to Publish to your website
1. To publish, run VS2010, right-click the web project in Solution Explorer, and select the Publish menu option
2. From this dialog, you will want to pick the Web Deploy publish method
3. The Service URL will be the default website URL for your server
4. The site/application value is simply the name of your website as seen in IIS manager
5. Make sure  you enter the user name/password of the user account on the host server that has permissions to publish to the site
