I have my domain hosted in my own server. There are two applications running on my server that are accessible via (IIS on port 80) and (Tomcat on port 8080).

Now I would like to create a subdomain like and make the available in it so that the user need not specify the port to accesa the app.

Is it possible to do?

Please give me some guidance.

Depends on your IIS version, IIS can act as a reverse proxy for version 7.0 and above.

If you are using IIS below 7, it'd be better to run your IIS on ports
other than 80, and then setup a reverse proxy with apache that run on
port 80.
