    I want to know if it’s possible to host two websites on the same server using the same port (80) and IP address. I am limited to using Microsoft IIS 7.0 not apache, but I can run PHP on it. (One of the sites is Joomla based)
    If I register two domain names to, example1.com and example2.com, to IP address xx.xxx.xxx.xxx is there a script I could run or an IIS setting I could change so that users are redirected to a different folder or index page based on which domain name they use? Also if this is done with a PHP script or something similar would search engines index both pages correctly?
    I know similar results can be achieved with Apache by using Virtual hosts in the httpd.conf file, but unfortunately I don’t know if this is possible with IIS.
    Thanks for the help

    Yes, Shared hosting does that only.
