Setting Up a Simple Web Site

Right out of the box, IIS is ready to serve up static Web pages and images. If you have files from an existing Web site, or if you can create and edit HTML files yourself, you can simply copy them into the home directory c:\inetpub\wwwroot and any subfolders you want to create. The default page name is initially default.htm, so give the file with your entry or home page this name.

With no further administration or fuss, other users on your network and/or on the Internet can view your Web site, using your computer's Internet domain name or, on a Windows LAN, by viewing http://machinename, where machinename is the Windows name of your computer. (You can find that name by right-clicking My Computer, selecting Properties, and viewing the Network Identification tab.)
