HTTP module

The package comes with a HTTP module that will kick in when Umbraco or IIS returns a response with a 404 status code. If this is the case, the module will look up the requested URL, and then redirect the user if a matching redirect is found in the database. The package will not intercept requests with any status code other than 404.
