Experts,

I'm not a web guy so forgive my ignorance. In regards to IIS on windows 2008, is it possible to have multiple websites listening on the same port?

A company I contract for has multiple URLs that resolve to the same webserver.  All sites use the standard HTTP port. I've always thought if you created another website on the same server, you had to specify a different port.

Just curious how they may be  doing that.

becraig,

Thank you for that. Host headers makes perfect sense.

Once they assign a hostname to a host header and bind to the IP address & port, how are the site contents binded to this host header?  
I'm guessing under the new host header, there is a place to build the site?

You are just creating a new site - So it will have it's own directory etc.

The only difference is you are actually specifying a URL / host header so the IIS Engine knows what to do with requests.


There is nothing different about creating this site to any other in IIS except specifying the host header.
