Adding a Domain Name in Microsoft IIS 7

After you set up your Microsoft IIS 7 server, you might need to add a new domain name. Adding a new domain name lets you set up a website and upload content to the server.

Before you add your new domain name, you might need to add a new IP address to the server. For more information, see Adding IP Addresses to Your Windows Server (Traditional).
