I don't understand what you mean by default site. I can see from the picture of the property page you posted that you have something called test2013.
How did you create this? using File > New Web Site or File > New Project?

How did you get to the property page that you have posted?

File > New Website - creates a Web Site Project

I would recommend using the newer type of project for web projects the web application project, this is found under File > New Project

See the attached link for details of these options.

What about the IIS Express are you trying to configure, the property page you are looking for is not found in website projects as they automatically use IIS Express.
The property page can be found with Web Application Projects however.
