Practice Exercise

Time to host a second website on your webserver! Use name-based-hosts to run two websites on the same IP and port.

Domain Name: <last name>family.com (i.e., howellfamily.com)

In general, here's what you have to do:

  1. Create a new forward DNS lookup zone for the new domain.
  2. Create a new host (A) record for www associated with your IP.
  3. Create a new document root for the new website.
  4. Create a new website/virtual server in IIS/Apache.
  5. Copy this file into your document root.
  6. Test!
