IIS7 default website

Please help, I’m trying to setup my own website, I point my www to my public IP address and forward to my IIS server, but when I open the site, it gave me the following error message. How can I enable my default web page? Thanks in advance.
Server Error
403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

Are you permitting anonymous access?

Try browsing to your site locally in IIS management.

https://localhost/ shows the IIS7 Logo, but http://localhost/ shows error message
HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden

The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Did you enforce an SSL requirement?
