IIS Bindings

Hello all,

I work for a company that sells a website as a private label. The code was finished two weeks ago and they had only 2 customers. Sudently, they have now 40 customers and they expect 400 new sign ups in the next couple of weeks. This is for the insurance industry.

So basically, I only have one website at IIS and I add as many bindings as domain names are requested.

I am not configuring anything on IIS, they require to point the @ record at the registrant to the server's IP address.

Am I doing this the wrong way? Having hundreds of bindings on one website is wrong? Should I have a website per domain name?

One web server can has many websites configured with exactly same contents in IIS.

What you need is to set the header names in IIS.


Prior to this, your clients domain's A record should point to the IP of your web server first.
i think you can add as much websites as you want as long that you have strong server and good bandwidth, if you run databases on the server i would suggest to use a different apllication pool so if one web site will go crazy the other will not be affected.
