Add A Static Website On IIS Windows Server 2019


Internet Information Services (IIS, formerly Internet Information Server) is extensible Web server software developed by Microsoft for use on the Windows NT family. IIS supports HTTP, HTTP/2, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SMTP, and NNTP. It has been an integral part of the Windows NT family since Windows NT 4.0, but may not be present in some editions (such as Windows XP Home Edition) and is not active by default. In the last tutorial, we saw how to configure IIS on Windows Server 2019. In this tutorial, we are going to see how to add a static website to replace the IIS default webpage. Using this method you can easily deploy your webpage within a matter of seconds.

  • Visit the path “%SystemDrive%\inetpub\wwwroot” to edit the default page.


  • These are the HTML files hosted with the Default IIS Web Server. You can edit those files as per your need. Or can replace the file with your website source code and it will display it for the server IP.




At last, these are the basic steps to add a static website on IIS web server, in the next tutorial we will talk about how to add a new website to the IIS web server defining the local directory path, hostname, and the port for the Internet. We will also take a look at publishing web apps in .net.
