Redirect requests to your application with the HttpRedirection module
The HttpRedirection module allows you to configure regular expression-based rules that redirect clients from url A to url B using http redirection.

When clients make a request to your server, and the url matches one of the redirection rules you have configured, the server will respond with a redirection response, telling the client to go to your redirected url to complete the request. It will look something like this (standard redirection response):

HTTP/1.1 302 Found\r\n
Date: Thu, 24 May 2007 21:32:05 GMT\r\n
Location: /redirection/users/mike/\r\n

<html><head><title>Object moved</title></head><body>\r\n
<h2>Object moved to <a href="/redirection/users/mike/">here</a>.</h2>\r\n

The Location response header will indicate the redirected url to which the client will automatically redirect. Some older browsers that don’t support this behavior (I don’t know of any at this point) will see the hyperlink and the user will be able to manually click it to go to the new url.
