Performance or DNN 3rd Party Conflicts ?

Does it slow down site load time or is it incompatible with any DNN third party modules?

Generally it does not slow down site load time, if the redirects/rewrites are well thought out.

Due to the inherit architecture of redirects, a redirect will incur more overhead than a rewrite, simply because of the time required to go to the browser and back. However, many redirects are required because of retired or archived web pages, in which case a redirect is much more preferable than having the user receive a Http status code 404. There is a section in the nUrlRewriter documentation on how redirects versus rewrites work.

With respect to DNN 3rd party module conflicts, I am not aware of any, and a number of my other Http Modules work well in a DNN environment. Of course you would not want two redirect Http Modules in your DNN configuration, so simply remove any DNN supplied redirect module and replace with nUrlRewriter.
