    I'm sure I'm just missing something but I can't seem to figure this out. We're going to run Sitefinity on our internal production webserver to allow certain user's to modify content. I'm trying to figure out how to go from http://physicalhost/[ProjectName] to http://projectname.domain.com so that the site admins can access it via http://physicalhost/[ProjectName] and the readers can be given http://projectname.domain.com.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Will,

    Probably your hosting panel supports this option. You should map your subdomain to resolve your domain path. Here is a sample where 127.0.0.1 is the ip of your domain.

    127.0.0.1        subdomain.localhost 

    You can also create a CNAME alias if your hosting support it.

    Sincerely yours,

    I understand that part my question is more towards how to configure IIS so that it will forward request for http://projectname.domain.com/ to the site managed by sitefinity.

    Hello Will,

    Sitefinity does not restrict you to access it from one domain only. If you configure your your server to allow one to access the Sitefinity project by two URLs, it should work just fine.
    I am not sure what else we can tell you, please elaborate a bit more on the current problems you have if you still need our assistance.

    I'm looking for the instructions on how to create a site in IIS that responds to http://newssite.domain.com and serves up the pages  at http://physicalhost/newssite. So that the admins can access through the sitefinity portal and that we can point users to the nice name. I know how to setup IIS with host headers for multiple sites, is it as easy as pointing the home directory to <drive path to sitefinity>\newssite ?

    Hi Will,

    I am still not sure about the setup, I am sure that I am missing something. Basically you have two options:

    1. Redirects
    - When you access http://newssite.domain.com, you can be redirected to http://physicalhost/newssite. This could be done with an HttpModule. Please note that you could check if the user wants to access the administration, and do not redirect him if this is the case.
    2. Domain binding
    - You could map both domains
    http://newssite.domain.com and http://physicalhost/newssite to your project. In this case, your project will be served from the domain it is requested.

    Let me know if I could be of further help.

    Kind regards,
