Can't get IIS to work right
Help me please!

I purchased VPS hosting.

I set the "A Record" for my domain (at a well known cheap internet registrar) to the IP address for my server.

I went into IIS, and set up a new website. I placed a test index.htm file into the home directory for the new website.

But instead of the requests going to the new website, they are going to wwwroot which is the default webisite which is stopped.

What did I do wrong?

OK sorry, please ignore my post. I realize that I needed two entries in the "advanced website identification" list. One for mydomain.com and one for www.mydomain.com.

The requests for www.mydomain.com were going to the default website because www.mydomain.com wasn't in the ID list.

This is Bill Gates' fault for making everything so darn complicated.
