I have one Windows 2012 Server which hosts public Internet web sites.

Q) Can the same IIS 8 also host private Intranet web sites?

It's not clear if you mean internal (not public) sites, but in either case, the answer is yes.

Sure it can. Under IIS 8 you can have multiple Websites.

Take a look here for a simple example:

Sure thing.  Just create a new website on the same server.  Just set up your IP Address bindings for each website so that they don't overlap and conflict.  For instance, maybe your intranet website only responds on a specific (internal) IP address or port.

I currently have two web sites which are accessible from the Internet: www.mydomain.com, web2.mydomain.com. I would like web2 accessable on Intranet only. I'm unsure how to setup web2 in IIS 8.
