I have installed DNN in my localhost in the link: http://localhost/dnnsite/


Also I created two sites with two aliases as: 

http://localhost/dnnsite/en (English Version of the site)

http://localhost/dnnsite/ar (Arabic Version of the site)


Now I need that whenever user enter the site name as http://localhost/dnnsite/, it should be automatically redirected to the English version (http://localhost/dnnsite/en). 

(The same will be implemented in Live Site like when ever user enter  should be redirected to


Kindly tell me the possible ways to make it.


Thanks in advance.

take a look at the site settings graphic half way through this blog (note: you don't need to use content localization, I only reference that article as it has a good graphic to show)

Thanks for your info. I got how it translates from one language to another language. But I don't want this. 

I actually need to maintain completely different language sites, no related contents between the two.

That is no translation need to be performed. Two portals (portal per language) need to be done, whose contents are not related each other, need independent editor for each site.  

When the site name is typed in URL ( it just to redirect to to (English portal). From there I can have a link to for arabic version. 

Please tell us the way to do the same.

I suggest creating a child site per language and a module on the landing page of (single) home page in the parent site, which redirects according to the language. AFAIR, there was a module by Effority on Codeplex some time ago.

Thanks for your suggestions which looks great!

I am looking for such modules to redirect home-page to one of his child-page.

If anybody find the same, kindly inform me.
