Hello guys,

I really need your help. I will try to explain my problem as brief as possible.

I have the following SharePoint structure

What i need are URLs friendly and readable for the visitors. So, if a user types: then http://domain:port/sites/Group/ will open;

if a user types: then http://domain:port/sites/Group/Company/ will open

I can specify a host header for the web application, but I don’t know for such a possibility related with the portal sites.

How can i achieve this?

Thank you in advance,

A good idea is to make more important sites independent web applications, just as u mentioned below, just not for the access but also for regular maintenance, security, backup/restore and not to forget the overhead view. If you have a site collection with a root site and lots of subsites beneath it i suggest you use the root site as a index where you point out diffrent underlying sites and such creating an eceptable overhead.

I cannot helt you creating hostheaders like that. Infact, i’m not sure if it is possible, funny thing is i really should know, but thats another story.

Oh i almost forgot, you can create an empty web application, use a hostheader and then redirect the web application to the link for the sharepoint site you want a hostheader on. That way you can use hostheaders even far down the structure of a sps site.
