Published by

If your website requires a particular charset , you can set this globally for your virtual host in the IIS config settings.

IIS 6.0 F1: Web Site Properties – HTTP Headers Tab
Custom HTTP headers

You can use this property to send a custom HTTP header from the Web server to the client browser. Custom headers can be used to send instructions from the Web server to the client browser that are not yet supported in the current HTTP specification, such as newer HTTP headers that IIS may not inherently support at the time of the product’s release. For example, you can use a custom HTTP header to allow the client browser to cache the page but prevent proxy servers from caching the page.

Test your work using curl

Curl -i hostname
