Ok I am setting up a web server, this is the first one I have set up in about 7 years so I am a little rusty. I am running Windows Server 2012 and IIS 8.5 hosted with 1&1. I have gone into IIS, added a new site and set the IP address for the site to the dedicated IP address assigned to my hosting account. However when I attempt to access the domain through an external browser I am still being redirected to the "Default Web Site" that 1&1 has set up in IIS. I have looked at the bindings of the default site and it is set to use "All Unassigned" IP addresses but since I assigned the primary IP address to my new site I thought that would, by default, override the "All Unassigned" setting.
My question is how do I get my site to be primary in IIS? I know I am missing a step somewhere but I cannot figure out what I have overlooked. I would prefer not to delete the Default Web Site because it is there for a reason.
