How to Host Multiple Domains / Web Sites on one IIS6 Server

I'm a developer and only know the basics of IIS administration.

I want to give each of my clients a personalized URL to access my web site. I have and I would like to allow client A to acess the site via and client B to use These would all point the the domain with the same ip address.

Can this be done in IIS? Do I have to register new domains for each client? Are there other ways to accomplish the same thing?

This is not the same question at all. The referenced question asks how to set up multiple sites on a single server. I'm asking how to use different urls on a single domain. – TGnat Aug 21 '09 at 12:03

This needs to be handled at the DNS level: there should be records for and, pointing to the same IP address.

If all of them need to see the same web site, then you need not to configure anything: the default web site in IIS automatically responds to any host name it gets called with; if you're not using the default web site, you can still configure a single web site to answer multiple names.

If they need to see different web sites, you need to define different web site and configure them to answer the correct names.

You can read this article:

The important part of it it's the following:

Microsoft Windows IIS : In case of Internet Information Server (IIS), create a new web site for the subdomain using the IIS Manager, and add the sub-domain (e.g. as a new host header value listening to the same IP address as specified in the DNS entry. The port is set to 80 (the default for http requests). The host header can be added by clicking on the advanced tab next to the IP address configuration for that web site application. If the subdomain points to a subdirectory of the web site for the domain, then set the home directory for the subdomain web site to the subdirectory. For example, if the points to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ and the subdomain needs to be setup for C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\subdomain, then the directory for the subdomain website should be set to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\subdomain
