How To Add HTTP Redirect Rule To A Website Using IIS

Step 1 – Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

Step 2 – Under the “Connections” panel, expand “Server” list and then “Sites”. Navigate to the web site or application that you want to configure a custom error page for.

Step 3 – Under the “Home” panel, click on “HTTP Redirect”.

Step 4 – Check the box for redirect request and enter the new destination URL.

Step 5 –  You can optionally specify any of the following options :-

  • Configure the redirection destination to be the exact destination as entered.
  • Configure the redirection destination to be limited to the destination URL’s root folder, not subfolders.
  • Configure the HTTP status code, which can be one of these three options:
  1. 301 Permanent
  2. 302 Found
  3. 307 Temporary


*Note: IIS 7 will respectively return the following actual HTTP response statuses for each of the above options:

  • HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
  • HTTP/1.1 302 Redirect
  • HTTP/1.1 307 Redirect
