You need to specify the port in your url because you are running your webserver (Apache) on a non-standard port. So, to eliminate this, you need to run Apache on port 80, which is the default http port, and what's assumed by the browser if no port is given.

So, your options are:

  1. Get a new server for Apache
  2. Move Apache to port 80, and move/delete IIS
  3. Put up with needing the port in the url
