Can someone walk me through the Final Steps of Hosting a Web Site?
Posted on 2006-11-01
Ok, First I'll explain what I've done and what I need.
I kind of inherited this IT job here at our very small company. We have 5 servers and 30 users. 3 days ago, I was told to Register a Web Site and put it on our Server with our Company's Web Site.
So, I went to Register.com and Registered the Web Site Name they decided on. I then started reading up on how to host multiple sites on the same server.
I went into the Server that holds our Company Web Site and Created a Directory in the Root C:\
I then went into the IIS and Right Clicked on the Company Web Site and Clicked Properties. Then I clicked the Web Site Tab and clicked on the IP Address we have assigned to it and clicked Advanced.
Edited the Multiple identities for this Web Site and typed the Company's Web Site address for the Host Header that I wanted.
I right clicked on the web server in IIS and clicked on New Web Site and created the new web site and followed the Wizard.
THEN when It was finished I went back and did the above stated steps for multiple web sites to this NEW Web site.
Once done I exited out.
I went to Register.com and clicked on the New Web Site and clicked on the Edit IP Addresses and I entered the Same IP address as our Company's Web site. I was thinking since the Company Web Site IP address is to THIS server and the New Web Site is on THIS server they would therefore have the same IP address externally.
So, anyway, this is as far as I've gotten and when I try to go to the web site I get the Blank White page with the Forbidden Error.
So, Can anyone walk me through the remainder of the way?
