Use Web Deployment Tool, also known as MS Deploy, it is easier to manage, deploy, and migrate  web servers.

    * Ability to synchronize or migrate the entire Web server, or a single Web site or application.
    * Synchronizes only data that has changed.
    * Ability to detect missing dependencies during synchronization.
    * Automatically gathers the following when you sync a Web site:
          o Content
          o IIS configuration
          o Certificates
          o Registry keys
          o ASP.NET configuration
    * Use a secure service (server administrators only, can be secured with HTTPS, etc.) to synchronize the machines.
