How to add a domain name manually from IIS


How to add a domain name manually from IIS
I assume you are trying to add a domain name manually from your Windows 2000 server IIS and all connections were already setup properly. All your clients can browse to your domain / IP but they were prompted for user name and password due to the permission was not setup properly.
Please follow steps below:
==================================
A) Create a web anonymous user
==================================
1. Log into Server
2. Right click on "My Computer" > "Manage"
3. Expand the computer management console:
Local > Local Users and Groups > Users
4. Right Click on "User" > "New User ..."
5. Enter a user name; example: domain.com_web
6. Enter a password for domain.com_web
7. Click "Create"
8. Close this console

==================================
B) Assign Folder Permissions
==================================
1. Right click on your web folders > "Properties"
exp: C:domainsdomain.comwww
2. Click on "security tab"
3. Click on "Add"
4. Select the "domain.com_web" user you have just created and "Add", click "ok"
5. Allow permissions below:
- Read & Execute
- List Folder Contents (optional)
- Read
6. Click "Apply" and "Ok"

==================================
C) Add Virtual Directory / Domain in IIS
==================================
1. Open IIS console
2. Right Click on "Local" (Your server name) > New > Web Site > Next
3. Enter Description = domain.com > Next
4. Enter the IP address to use for this web site
5. TCP Port = 80
6. Host Header for this site = leave blank if this is dedicated IP, otherwise enter "www.domain.com" > Next
7. Path = Your web folder path
Exp: C:domainsdomain.comwww (The folder which we assign domain.com_web user to)
8. Check "Allow Anonymous Access to this web site" > Next
9. "Allow the following" = "Read" & "Run Scripts" > Next
10. Finish
11. Find the domain you have just added in IIS console and right click on the domain > Properties
12. Click "Directory Security"
13. Under "Anonymous Access & Security Control" click "Edit"
14. Check "Anonymous Access" and click "Edit"
15. Anonymous User > User Name = domain.com_web (the user you have created in section A above"
16. Check "Allow IIS to control password
17. Click "Ok"
18. Under "Authenticated Access", check "Integrated Windows Authentication"

Hello Kiri,

1. You may follow above guides to add your domain entry to your IIS. (Please take note that above steps are for Windows 2000 Server, the steps for adding domain in Windows 2003 Server is slightly different.

2. Assign one of the IP say 209.11.245.186 for your softtamil.net.

3. Open your DNS Servers, create a new entry for softtamil.net.
- Add @ Host (A) Record pointing to 209.11.245.186
- Add www CNAME record pointing to softtamil.net.

If you have a mail server, you need to add a MX record as well.


4. Contact your domain registrar and register following name servers:

ns1.softtamil.net 209.11.240.35
ns2.softtamil.net (You need another IP for secondary DNS)

5. Update softtamil.net to point to ns1 and ns2.softtamil.net

6. Wait 24 hours for DNS propagation.

If you need any help, please PM me and quoted this thread, I will help you or ask one of my System Engineer to help you have a look on your configuration.

Cheers!

Does anyone know why it takes so long for web hosting companies to install a subdomain?
Thanks

A subdomain, or a third-level domain is usually registered within 48 hours with most companies.

Hello,

Along with the below said steps for the domain to work you need to add the domain to the dns server also if the dns server are maintained separately. You also need to create a dns record, so that your domain propogates and work fine globally.

Thank you.

Regards,
