  • Host Header Name Routing

    let start this off with I don't want to put each site on it's own port, and then forward that port to that server.

    I have 1 ip address that I want to be able to host multiple physical servers behind. I have 4 servers all hosting 4 different web sites. Now I hear this can be done with Microsoft ISA Server but I dont see why this can't be done with Windows 2008 DNS Server. Does anyone have any insite on how I can host lot's of servers behind 1 ip? It seem that huge companies like Godaddy can do this for customers that dont have dedicated IP's so why can't I?

    Thanks for any help.

      thanks but i've been doing that for years now. I need to route traffic to multiple server not 1 IIS server hosting several sites. Anyone got any help out there?

        You should have requested that it be moved rather than create a new thread for it.

            Re: Host Header Routing

            Have you tried anything yet?
            I've had a quick glance into this and it looks like a reverse proxy or maybe the Rewrite module in IIS7 could do it.
            Also a product which is a combination of the two like this: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/urlrewriter

              With google you can find loads of examples about this, for example:
              http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305052
              http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838252

              Also why are you comparing yourself with a service provider. I guess they have a huge infrastructure...

              Oh and by the way Microsoft DNS server has nothing to do with this. You simply create an A record to a public address on the ISP's DNS server. That Ip address should be bind to a (hopefully) firewall interface. ISA can do host headers.

              An option for ISP's might be multiple addresses, natted or routed to their web environment. Apache can do host headers to so on linux is this possible either.

                There just seems like there is an easier way to do this rather then standing up a whole new ISA server. I have 5 Seperate IIS7 servers that I want to move behind 1 IP Address. There is no hardware solution for this?

                  Or maybe failover Clustering or NLB : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970759
                  but you'll need to review and reasses your current setup.
