MVC3 check what url was called (regardless of server/interface)

In some cases there is a need to check if the url that is used to access a page corresponds to what we expect.

This can be done like this

if ( Request.RawUrl.ToString() == Url.Action("LogOut", "Account") ){
    //The url of the action was used to access this page (and no extra GET parameters or anything hinkey) - and any servername/ip we listen to was used

This differs from getting the URI in the way that this is the RawUrl is only the part after the server (so for RawUrl would contain /url/to/stuffs where the URI would contain details about how the user got there.

MVC3 Getting the URI in a controller

If there is a need to get the URI that the was used to reach the controller then the Request holds that information and it can be retrieved to a URI object

public ActionResult MyAction()
    var uri = Request.Url;
    var port = uri.Port;
    var absoluteUri = uri.AbsoluteUri
    //... do things here
    return View();
