Sharepoint not working

We needed 2 ways to connect to sharepoint. One via direct ip and another with username and password authentication.

We created an additional web site and copied the site settings of sharepoint and set it up with authentication and then found we had broken sharepoint.

We then deleted the new website in IIS and found that sharepoint just wants to come up with errors.

We tried to backup the site and create a whole new server to then restore to but this did not work. A user that had a page left open to the sharepoint site could still browse the site but it seems the entry point into the site is not working.

It might be something as simple as accessing it via the new IIS site has caused it to make some changes so it effectively has a dns issue.

I look forward to working with anyone that can fix this.

Have checked the dns and that is fine. The sharepoint site in IIS allows for any requests on port 80.

check your Alternate Access Mappings, and verify that http://xyz.hosting.com.au. if not add it.
then make sure you have an entry in dns for this url.

I'd recommend using SQL Manager to backup the content database, and clean all user web applications out of Central Admin.  Clean out IIS of your user created content.

Then, read about Alternate Access Mappings and Extending a SharePoint Application and try again!
