Hello,  

I have a Windows 2008 DC running IIS7.  I need to have 2 separate domains hosted on it (www.site1.com, www.site2.com).  

Site1:

It's domain info is at Mailtrust.com (DNS, forwarding, etc..)
     -  I have this domain pointing to my public ip at the office.
     -  I can see the static page I created.

Site2:

It's domain info is at GoDaddy.com.
    - I also have the domain pointing to the office public IP.
    - when I go to www.site2.com it pulls up the static page of site1.

So, I think my major question is how do I configure my Server (DNS, IIS) and the Godaddy info to go to the same server as an existing website and domain.

I'm doing this so I can then configure my Exchange 2007 to host both domain email addresses.

Thanks for the responses in advance.

You'll need to add host headers/names to each website in IIS.

Pull up each site and edit the bindings for each. You will want to add  www.site1.com and www.site2.com to the host name for the sites respectively.
