Can I create 2 completely separate Sharepoint websites on the same server? I have 2 companies that I want to have their own SharePoint site.

So far the primary company, Company 1, is there and setup and working but when I create any new SITE it shows up under the primary. Is this how it has to be? Am I missing something?

Basically - it I can assigned a different INTERNAL IP address to each of the different sites that would help too. Can this be done?

Hello,

are you a farm administrator? You could use two separate web applications.

Or use two separate site collections in the same web application

If you are a site collection administrator and cannot access Central Administration you can still create two sub sites in the same site collection.

Just don't create one site as the sub-site of the other.

cheers, teylyn

As teylyn has suggested, you will need Farm Admin permissions as this work needs done in Central Admin and likely the web server(s).

If you don't mind the sites sharing the DNS portion of the URL (http://sp.domain.com), you could simply create another site collection for company 2.  This would result in a URL similar to http://sp.domain.com/sites/company2 (this is just an example).

If you want seperate DNS names you have two options:  create a new web application via Central Admin or create a host-named site collection.   This would result in a URL similar to http://sp2.domain.com.

If you want to assign a separate IP you should probably create a new web application, which will be a new site in IIS, and you can assign your IP there.

I am the ADMIN master of ALL. I built the servers and the domain and have full access.

Regarding the first option - using site collection. I have done this and this is not what I want. I cant have company2 under company1. I don't want them touching or even knowing that they are on the same machine.

I want separate DNS names. I guess I need to search CREATE NEW WEB APPLICATION? Will this be easy to find?
