    Setting up a server with Win XP

    Is there a way to host more than one site with IIS in Win XP?
    If you don't know, you better ask somebody

    Unfortunately no. IIS in Windows XP is a scaled down version of IIS, like the Personal Web Server in earlier versions of Windows. You can only run one site on it.

    If your sites are not ASP or ASP.Net driven, you could install the WIN32 version of Apache. Then you can run multiple web sites on Windows XP.

    You need to use Windows .NET Server which is now in Release Candidate Status.

    Or since all them would be on a single IP, you can use some ASP based programming to redirect the individual to the appropriate site based on the URL requested.

    Kind of looks like the ASP solution that I hinted at in my post above.
