Page Aliases and Site Speed
We are working to port our old website over to kentico. The naming convention of our pages are different. For example; | (extension-less). We are attaching aliases on each new page that match our old site. So kentico will have an alias on the page of

My question is, how much will this slow down our site. I know that each page load will need to run through these rules before displaying the final content. If we end up having 500 site wide aliases, will this hurt our performance?

Also, would it be better to utilize IIS URL Rewrite as opposed to the kentico alias?

RE:Page Aliases and Site Speed

I do not see any performance issues here. There will be just 301 redirect when someone has the page bookmarked but after this the user will browse the new site. The same applies to search engine crawlers - they will notice the 301 redirection to the new URL and they will continue crawling the new site and its URLs.
