Url Rewriter

Managed Fusion URL Rewriter is a powerful URL manipulation engine based on the Apache mod_rewrite extension. It is designed, from the ground up to bring all the features of Apache mod_rewrite to IIS 6.0 and IIS 7.0. Managed Fusion Url Rewriter works with ASP.NET on Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS) 6.0 and Mono XPS Server and is fully supported, for all languages, in IIS 7.0, including ASP.NET and PHP. Managed Fusion Url Rewriter gives you the freedom to go beyond the standard URL schemes and develop your own scheme.

URL Rewriter provides web site owners with the ability to replace URL paths and querystring into links that your users can easily remember without the need for bookmarks. As an added benefit your web site becomes search engine friendly, which means higher page ranking from the search engines, and should result in better lead generation.


How does it work?

Managed Fusion Url Rewriter is an HttpModule for the Microsoft ASP.NET Web Framework, or IIS 7.0 Integrated Pipeline. All rules are managed in a plain text using Apache mod_rewrite syntax. 

These rules provide the web request a way to validate how the requesting friendly URL should be handled. Managed Fusion Url Rewriter does its best to find a matching rule for the friendly URL, if found, the request is rewritten to something your application understands or an HTTP redirect, to a different url, is sent back to the client depending on the actions given to the rule.

The result is a friendly and clean URL that completely masks your file structure from the client.

Unlike other existing URL rewriting process, Managed Fusion Url Rewrite is entirely masking the old URL so ASP.NET Form Postbacks are fully supported by this component and it uses the common Apache mod_rewrite syntax that is so popular with PHP, Cold Fusion, and Ruby.
