Web Site Setup (IIS 6.0)

Whether your site is on an intranet or the Internet, the principles of providing content are the same. You place your Web files in directories on your server so that users can establish an HTTP connection and view your files with a Web browser. But beyond simply storing files on your server, you must manage how your site is deployed and how your site evolves. Today, an engaging Web site is seldom a static collection of pages. Most successful server administrators are kept busy accommodating ever changing Web content.
