2)  After that on your Windows Server Go to Start => Run and type inetmgr . This will open your IIS manager . In the Left pane Right Click on Sites and Click Add Website . Input the website name , the Physical path for the root of the website, select the IP address to which you want to point your website from the drop down  and the hostname of the website . Click Ok and the website will be added in IIS.


3) On the Server go to Start => Administrative tools=>DNS  =>Right Click Forward Lookup Zones =>Click New Zone , click Next , Select Primary Zone , Click next , type the website Name which you had created from IIS , click next , click next , Select Do not allow dynamic updates , click next , click Finish.

4) Once the Zone has been added you can Set the Name servers for the website and add the A record to point the website to your servers IP .

5) You now need to ask the registrar to point the A record of the website to the servers IP or Use the Name Server Set on the server .

Thats it . Now you can browse your website in the browser and start uploading files to the home directory of your website.
