    If you want to open the website through the IP address lke
    Then you have to assign dedictte ip for your website.
    IIS>website>select website>IP address

    If you want to redirect your URL to the folder then

    1. Through ASP redirect script : Create a HTTP ASP redirect script and upload on domain
    '' as Index.asp.It will redirect your http request to domain ''.
    Sample Script for redirect (make a index.asp file )

    <%Response.Buffer = True %>
    <%Response.Redirect ""%>

    2. Through IIS host header: The Host header of the domain will be create through IIS you can redirect direct by IIS host header
