Do you have an Active Directory setup with DNS?

If yes, open the DNS console (Control Panel / Administrative Tools / DNS) then create a new A record with the name of the server.

If you only have 1-2 machines in a non AD DNS you can modify the HOSTS file on each workstation.

You need to setup your dns to point it to the server but you will also need to go into IIS and change the home directory of your default web site.

Select -a redirection to a url
enter  "/website"

Put a checkmark in "a driectoy below url entered"
