You need to add virtual directories/applications to your hosting IIS configuration.

Under "Tools & Utilities" choose "Web Application Tool". Here's what the instructions say on the tool:

Use the directory tree to browse and select the specific subdirectory. When the specific subdirectory is listed under Current Path, you can click the button to Install Application or Remove Application.

Create a new directory for each of your applications (webapp1, webapp2, webapp3), then select each one in turn and click on "Install Application". The directory will be turned into an application starting point. From there you should be able to modify the application settings for each one to satisfy the needs of the particular application.

@peter I added the first web app and it works. I also did the folder for the second web app. What settings would I use (server, site path, destination url) when publishing the second web app, would they be the same as the first? – texter Apr 19 '11 at 19:38
"publishing"? Using what? I don't typically use any publishing mechanism. I usually just FTP to hosts. It's been a while since I've pushed anything to a host, though I still have access to an account there. – Peter Apr 19 '11 at 19:59
@peter I got it now thanks. – texter Apr 19 '11 at 20:29
