Create a new WebSite at IIS 7 (no , virtual directory is not good enough)
- Define site name
- Connect to physical path
- Define redirect site name – Host Name
The Host Name is the new url address for your site . It”ll work through port 80 , as defined at the picture.
You can enter another port , if you wish.
Port 80 is a default port for http protocol unsecured traffic . (Second default port is 8080)
Port 443 is a default port for https ssl enabled , secured with certificates traffic .
New Website called WebDDD
Edit Site(right pane) –> Bindings… –> YourNewRedirectName “DDD” on port 80
Add –> You can add more redirects with different names and ports.
Now we should see the IP of our server
Start –> run –> cmd –> ping YourServerName –> get the YourServerNameIP
Goto –> Your local terminal –> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc –> open hosts with Notepad –>
add a line
Now you’ve connected the Local Terminal with the Server Binding .
That’s it . On your local PC you can access the web site through http://DDD
and you’ll go to http://WebDDD .
If you get some security message from IIS – > check in the File System –> Your WebSite folder –> properties –> security –> Domain Users
If you are working with Server you should define the DNS in your Active Directory also..
