ISAPI_Rewrite 3 - Apache .htaccess mod_rewrite compatible module for IIS

ISAPI_Rewrite is a powerful regular-expressions-based URL rewriter for IIS. It is compatible with Apache mod_rewrite making it possible to move configurations from Apache to IIS and vice versa just by copying .htaccess files (please see this compatibility chart). It is used for search engine optimization, to proxy another server's content, stop hotlinking or strengthen server security.

Top features of ISAPI_Rewrite:

  • The same syntax and behavior as of Apache mod_rewrite make it possible to migrate configurations just by copying .htaccess files. Read more about mod_rewrite compatibility here.
  • Regular expressions for flexible and powerful configurations.
  • Extremely fast and highly scalable pure C++ code.
  • Real distributed configurations: global server level, virtual host (web site) level, directory level .htaccess files with real-time monitoring.
  • Isolation – user level configuration affects only local user environment making ISAPI_Rewrite an ideal solution for web hosting providers.
