My requirement is to implement 301 redirect. I have tried using URL Rewrite using iis and Web.config. But both iis & web.config is taking more size.

Kindly suggest the possibilities to implement 301 redirect in sharepoint 2010 without using iis & web.config.

Thanks in Advance.

You don't really have a whole lot of options here, but here are a few:

1) IIS URL Rewrite Module (I know you don't want this, but it is actually the best route) -

2) Your own custom Http Handler - (applies to 2007, but with the modifications suggestion here it works:

3) Use JavaScript in page content to do it -

4) Use the AdditionalPageHead delegate to create your own user control that does it (see for an example on that control). And just use a Response.Redirect call.
