I developed an ASP.NET web application.  I right clicked -> add applications and entered appropriate info.  When I browse it shows as http:\\www.myserver.com\myaspapplicaiton.

How do I enter http:\\www.myserver.com  and have it display myaspapplication without showing the applicaiton name in iis?

put an index.htm in your website and have it redirect to your application url(Meta Redirect)

In the head of the document type the folowing:

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http:\\www.myserver.com\myaspapplicaiton" />

Another option is using 301 redirects.

Here is your original question:-
When I browse it shows as http:\\www.myserver.com\myaspapplicaiton.

How do I enter http:\\www.myserver.com  and have it display myaspapplication without showing the applicaiton name in iis?

if this is what you want to do, here is another approach:-

make a default.aspx page as your website(http:\\www.myserver.com)'s default page.
In the page load of default.aspx, do a server.transfer to your new url.

this would shift your website to new url without changing the url in browser....

there has to be a way to do this.  I know if you have a website at godaddy.com it is not set up as www.godaddy.com\mywebiste.  You had a DNS www.mywebsite.com which is www.godaddy.com\mywebsite.
