Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I configured a domain on IIS 7.5 with windows 2008 r2 and put an index.html file on the inetpub/wwwroot/domain folder.

When I browse the webpage currently I´m receiving two different pages:

  • using domain.com I receive the iistart.htm welcome page.

  • using www.domain.com I receive the index.html file I created.

I create the CNAME pointing www.domain.com to domain.com in order to serve content using both addresses´s.


When using domain.com it points to the Default Web Site created by default by IIS 7.5. I realized about that when I stopped that site.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

ok I found the reason. despite that I created the CNAME on the DNS area, IIS needs to set up bindings pointing to www.domain.com and domain.com for each website. brgds –  s_h Jul 15 '11 at 6:20

I found the reason. Despite creating the CNAME record in my DNS, IIS needs bindings for both www.domain.com and domain.com for each website.
