IIS Express is a lightweight, self-contained version of IIS and optimized for developers. IIS Express provides the power of IIS7.x and makes it very easy to develop and test web applications. Visual Studio 2010 SP1 provides complete integration with IIS Express. In one of my previous post I discussed How you can Run “IIS Express” and “Cassini” simultaneously in Visual Studio 2010 SP1. In this post I am going to discuss about how you can bind multiple URL’s for a single Web Application with IIS Express.
IIS Express is a lightweight, self-contained version of IIS optimized for developers. IIS Express provides the power of IIS7.x while making it easy to develop and test websites. Why we say that it has power of IIS7.x because it runs on code base of IIS 7.5. Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Beta allows you to build and test web applications using IIS Express instead of the built-in ASP.NET Development Web Server (Cassini). If you want to use IIS Express with VS 2010, you have to install IIS Express separately on top of Service Pack 1. To know more about details of use of IIS Express, please read the post http://bit.ly/i8BN1H . We can set IIS Express as default Web Server for Visual Studio or We can also change from Project Properties. Well, In this post I am going to talk about how we run the both IIS and Cassini simultaneously for multiple projects in a single solutions.
