IIS redirection

I have created a new website in IIS 7 under the Default Website. Internally, from my desktop, when I go to the url - "http://url.domain.com" I get the Welcome IIS 7 homepage. On the IIS server if I browse website the website comes up fine though.
In my browser if I add to the end of the url as "http://url.domain.com /applicantionname/login" the page appears  correctly.
How can I make that happen automatically?
Thanks.

The issue here is the way how you set up your content directory structure.

You will need to create your folder structure s such that  it points to the contents of your application. and then you will add whatever extention is loading you login page in the default document if it not default.aspx, index.asp etc.

I hope this helps.

Create a new website outside the default website called http://application.domain.com and have it look at your website directory.

You COULD copy this code to a index.html under the default website and make it standard page in IIS to open BUT there is a risk you break other websites under the default.
So unless you dont know, continue but document what you have done so you can reverse it if disaster strikes

Sorry for the confusion but it is a website outside the default website and not under it. When I wrote in the first post that it was under I didn't mean exactly under, but it's a totally separate website. Thanks.

Cool. In that case. Can you (in bindings) add url.domain.com on port 80?

I've already done that before but still same results.

When I go to http://app.domainname.com - I see the Welcome IIS page

When I go to http://app.domainname.com/app/apptest - I see the page I want to see

All I did was add on /app/apptest to the end.
Thanks.

Can you printscreen the bindings from your 'separated' website?
Maybe also one showing IIS where websites are separated?

I cannot help help but thinking it is directly under default website.

OK.. In the root directory of your obvious seperated website, is there website code for IIS to work with?

If you click your website in IIS and select basic settings.
In the base URL shown there, is there HTML code? (browse to its location and check) E.g. you could copy my code in a index.html and place it there and see what it does.

Patrick, if I click on basic settings I don't see where it leads me to a base url. I see I can select site name or the physical path or connect as or test settings...nothing I see where there is html code or a url.

giveandtake, how do I point to the contents of the application login page and default doc?

Thanks.
