domain name alias?

i am trying to direct customers to the following webpage:

www.canchair.com/remove.asp but would like them to only have to type:
www.canchair.com/remove (without the .asp extension).

What is this technique called or how is this accomplished?

RE: domain name alias?


There are two ways :
  • redirect - automatically forward the visitor to the target URL
  • rewrite - internally replace the requested URL with the target URL, without any sign visible to visitors
Ask/search for them in your web server's forum/documentation. This is not a design question.


RE: domain name alias?

put it in a folder called /remove/ and rename the page to default.asp

the technique is called URL rewriting and does not exist for ASP natively.
