Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What is IIS server role?

Internet Information Services (IIS) is a flexible, general-purpose web server from Microsoft that runs on Windows systems to serve requested HTML pages or files. An IIS web server accepts requests from remote client computers and returns the appropriate response.

Q2. What is IIS administration?

Administration is a Windows service that exposes a RESTful API for managing IIS. IIS Web Manager (https://manage.iis.net) is a client that consumes this API to provide a familiar GUI to manage IIS.

Q3. Which Is the Default Identity of An Application Pool?

Network Services

Q4. What is IIS and how it works?

IIS (Internet Information Server) is one of the most powerful web servers from Microsoft that is used to host your Web application. IIS has it's own Process Engine to handle the request. So, when a request comes from client to server, IIS takes that request and process it and send response back to clients

Q5. Is IIS a web server or application server?

IIS 6.0 is basically a web server, with an extension, aspnet_isapi.dll, which handles the ASP.NET functionality. in IIS 7.0 and above, the .NET handling has been integrated into the webserver itself, and IIS might be considered an application server, hosting .NET applications (ASP.NET).

Q6. What is the use of worker process in IIS?

An IIS Worker Process (w3wp.exe) handles the web requests sent to the IIS web server for the configured IIS application pool. IIS application pools also provide a bunch of advanced settings. These impact the behavior of w3wp and your IIS worker process.

Q7. What is IIS architecture?

Architect III is responsible for minor or small architectural projects. Selects, evaluates, and implements architectural procedures and techniques used to complete projects. Requires a bachelor's degree of architecture. Typically reports to a supervisor or manager. Requires a state architect's license

Q8. How does request and response work in IIS?

Protocol listeners receive protocol-specific requests, send them to IIS for processing, and then return responses to requestors. For example, when a client browser requests a Web page from the Internet, the HTTP listener, HTTP.sys, picks up the request and sends it to IIS for processing.

Q9. Why we use IIS server?

IIS is a web server software package designed for Windows Server. It is used for hosting websites and other content on the Web. Microsoft's Internet Information Services provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for managing websites and the associated users.

Q10. How a Web request is processed on server?

Browser Sends Request After a browser has performed the DNS lookup, it sends an HTTP request to the appropriate server. It doesn't have to literally be HTTP. It can be HTTPS or more recently an HTTP/2 request. The general idea though it that your browser sends a request for a specific file, often an HTML file.

Q11. What is IIS Application Pool?/b>

Application Pool stated that Multiple web applications or Group of web applications. Application pool contain one or more Web URLs used by Worker processes. For one website or many websites we can assign Application Pool, to avoid the effect of other website need to create separate Application Pool.

Q12. Difference Between App Pool and App Domain In IIS?

App Pool and App Domain both are for isolations on different approaches. APP Pool use process to isolate without .net but for App Domain isolation methods by .net.

Q13. What is the key role of Http.sys in IIS?

HTTPS.SYS key component in Kernal level. It processes the queue which hit the client request for each Application Pool depend on request. While create any new Application Pool IIS will register the Application Pool with HTTP.SYS.

Q14. How does Web server communicate with application server?

Communication between a client and a server happens using a specific protocol, HTTP for example. Web servers primarily respond to HTTP / HTTPS requests. Application servers respond to any number of protocols depending on the application business logic. Web server returns responses that can be viewed on a web browser.
