When you are publishing the website on IIS it should bind with IP address and also you can provide the Host header.

Go to DNS ( if your IIS server is part of Domain ) and create a DNS A record entry

e.g. 10.1.1.1   and appnew.com

A 10.1.1.1 appnew.com

You will need to use folder redirection on the root/virtual directory of the website.  You can then point it to the appropriate folder
