Is it possible to have extension-less URLs (ASP.NET MVC default) with shared hosting? I have seen some things to get GoDaddy working by including the .aspx extension in the Global.asax routing, however I don't want my URLs to include .aspx.


Yes, I've got my site up through Gearhost. They just needed to enable that feature on II67 for my subdomain.

Yes, I have a couple sites that are currently hosted on GoDaddy shared w/ extensionless URLs in ASP.NET. You need to enable IIS7 integrated pipeline mode as you can't access wildcard mappings or add ISAPI filters on a shared box. Once that's turned on, you can route incoming (extensionless) URLs to .aspx or whatever else through an HTTP Module or via URLRewriter.NET or whatever else.

Good luck.
