I am trying to host a web service at an ISP but think I need to get localhost pointing at my site.

I created a binding for localhost and can browse my asmx page properly. But when I enter "localhost" into the browser, the default IIS page comes up.

Is that correct? Or should my web service come up?

I'm a bit confused.
