    As an experiment I'm currently hosting one of my domains on my own server. Now I need to know how to set up another (virtual host)on the same machine. The server is running NT 4.0 IIS 4.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Check for a program group called "Windows NT Option Pack". In that group will be a subgroup for Internet Information Server. You will have "Internet Service Manager listed in there" Run the application, not the HTML version.

    Once in there follow the directions below:
    Creating Virtual Directories
    If your Web site contains files that are located on a different drive than the home directory, or on different computers than the computer running Internet Information Server, you must create virtual directories to include those files in your Web site. A directory can be located on a local drive or on another computer on the network. To use a directory on another computer, you must specify the directory’s Universal Naming Convention (UNC) name and provide a user name and password to use for access permission. For an overview of virtual directories, see Virtual Directories.

    To create a virtual directory

    In Internet Service Manager, select the Web site or FTP site to which you want to add a directory.
    Click the Action button, and then point to New, and select Virtual Directory.
    Use the New Virtual Directory wizard to complete this task.
    To delete a virtual directory

    In Internet Service Manager, select the virtual directory you want to delete.
    Click the Action button, and select Delete. Deleting a virtual directory does not delete the corresponding physical directory or files.

    That was directly out of the IIS help files.

    As mentioned before I host one domain on my private server. I use the granitecanyon DNS servers.

    Now let's say I manage to create a virtual host as you described above. How should I proceed in order to add a domain to this virtual host a domain and make it visible for others on the internet?

    Can I just make a new DNS record for the new domain using the same IP? And does IIS direct the domain to the virtual host directly?
