IIS (Internet Information Services)

Website Hosting

Is an implementation of Microsoft's Web server for Windows operating systems. Initially up to version 5 is called Internet Information Server Web server, but due to the availability of support for various other Internet services was renamed to Services. IIS now employs about 30% of sites on the Internet. The main feature of the IIS-tight integration with the Windows platform, such as security and authentication system is based entirely on this operating system.

In addition to the Web server (IIS) provides service to provide access to files through FTP, to send e-mail using the SMTP Protocol, to provide access to newsgroups using NNTP and others. The main development tool in IIS is active server pages (ASP), though supported by virtually all other technologies.
