How to change the Default Port and IP address in IIS
  

I had this small question, though it is not easy, but how do we change the default port number and IP Address in Microsoft IIS Web Server. I have a Web server and I want to add more and more websites and run them simultaneously without any problem. One of my friend told me that it is possible to do so by changing the IP address of the website which will also reduce the cost. So can someone help me out in this please.?

Information on IIS

Yes it is possible to change the Default Port number and the IP address. And by doing so you can reduce the hosting charges and can add more websites and run them simultaneously without any problem. This technique is basically know as Virtual Hosting. In order to do so your computer should be able to properly run IIS without any problem. And all this can be done by doing some changes in the settings of IIS.
