you don't really need to do this as you can have separate sites in IIS.

While there are ways to do this, doing your own web hosting is not recommended.  Professional web hosting requires experts in not only servers but networking, power systems, and especially security.  If the web sites have anything of value, people will try to break into them and take things or even just destroy the sites.

you may check these out. In general just treat Wordpress as a tool/platform to create/organize your content easily while IIS is to host those content.

My client now is using CPanel ,my Boss requesting me move their Web to our Web server .What is that thing we need to install in our server then how to migrate Cpanel website to our window server ?

Commented:
First of all copy the website contents to your web server and test the web site ... on local if it's functioning fine then.
configure public IP to your web server and test the website with the public if every thing is fine then

 go for other things like DNS and Host transfer to your web server Domain.

copy web contents from exiting to new web server could be easy with FTP access to your existing website on CPANEL.

The fact that you are asking that means that you are not ready to be hosting other people's web sites.  CPanel is a Linux-based control panel and covers much more than just web sites.  It also manages email and databases and programming languages.
