url rewrite to avoid third level domain still make sense?

Hello everyone. I've been using f5 in a simple way for some years - I'm not an expert - but i have always implemented the visibility of sites with third-level domains for example: https://company.com/test -> redirect to https://test.company.com for my application or site. Now the business request has changed, they no longer want to see the third level url (https://test.company.com/) but always https://company.com/test/ecc.ecc.ecc i suppose i should implement heavy url rewrite rules. The question is, the url rewrite to avoid third level domain still make sense, is it still valid, or does it turn out to be deprecated for some reason? or for simplicity the third level domain remains the best solution? Thanks to everyone Alberto

"or for simplicity the third level domain remains the best solution?" - Yes 3rd Level domain is easy to understand and works great. However, since your business prefers the other way, rules to redirect the traffic based on URI is you have to go with.

"the url rewrite to avoid third level domain still make sense, is it still valid," - Yes it makes absolute sense and I find no reason why it should be deprecated. However, with the 3rd Level domain your could use separate VS with separate VIP for each 3rd-level domain name, which will not be possible now. So, it becomes a bit complicated affair to troubleshoot any problem with any particular URL, having the same domain name "company.com".

 

hope that helps.

as a technician ... if something works great, it's easy to understand ... and it's also easy to configure and manage .... it's always the best way!

but ....
