Robots.txt for different sites

Vote:
 

Hi All,

I have a EPi server web application. The same web application is hosted under 3 domains.  Now my requirement is to have diffrenet Robots.txt for different domains. But since all the domains are pointing to sane folder I can have only file placed in that folder. Is there any workaround for placing seperate Robots.txt file under each domain.

 

Thanks in Advance.

You can create 3 files:

robotsDomain1.txt 

robotsDomain2.txt 

robotsDomain3.txt  

and then define your own handler, assign it to robots.txt in web.config

<httpHandlers>
<add verb="*" path="robots.txt" type="Project.RobotsHandler"/>
</httpHandlers>

and inside the handler check Request.Url.DnsSafeHost and return the content of one of the files.  If you use IIS7 you define handlers in section

<system.webServer>
<handlers>
<add name="robots" path="robots.txt" verb="*" type="Project.RobotsHandler, Project" />
</handlers>
</system.webServer>

Thanks for your reply.

Can you point me to any URL that explains the code to be written in the Handler.
