Microsoft: IIS Web Server


Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is an extensible web server software with a large number of features. IIS can be:

  • used to host ASP.NET web applications and static websites.
  • used as an FTP server, host WCF services.
  • extended to host web applications built on other platforms such as PHP.
  • used with built-in authentication options such as Basic, ASP.NET, and Windows auth.
  • managed via the CLI or using PowerShell. 
  • used to produce IIS websites with a number of tools, including WebDav and Microsoft Visual Studio.

In the Common Information Model, Microsoft IIS data is typically mapped to the Web data model.
