i have IIS running on a couple servers at my company, one hosting our companies website and the other hosting a web portal for outside clients. now we also bought a domain name for our web portal which i guess automatically comes with a public IP. we have all web pages configured on our server thats hosting the web portal, however, we would like clients to type in the name of our other registered domain name and bring up the entire site located on this server. A. is this possible to point all pages on our server to that registered domain name we're not using, and B. if it is, how do i go about configuring that? for example, we have a site registered as, say, www.smith.com, and its not in use right now. on our IIS server thats hosting our web portal, we have to type in the address bar, the UNC path for that server and the share all the pages are on. how can i set it up that clients can type in www.smith.com and have them point to our web portal server? everything is running on w2k server and IIS 6 i think, if not 5. i tried to create another web site on our IIS and call it the name we have registered (ex. smith) and tried to put in the public IP address in the web site identification area, but that doesnt seem to be working well.
any ideas how to set this up? thanks! let me know if you need more info
