I know how to iis7 manager create bindings to have a subdomain for a domain name (website.com)

but can I create a subdomain for an ip address

the ip address uses the folder with files
which I can see on a browser

but when I create http://subdomain.ipaddress

I asked IF this is possible and you answered yes and provided the environment

I have a similar question of which I ask HOW is this possible
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I've provided host name as  <test.>

And host entry done in my local desk as below

192.168.x.x       test.

and it is working. I haven't tried direct IP address in host-header. If your requirement
is like that then let me know I've to simulate again for that scenario.
