A static website is hosted by the Windows Server-based technology known as IIS. It is not switched on by default. We need to configure IIS before we can host content. A web page (HTML) that is given to the user exactly as saved is known as static content. Dynamic content, on the other hand, is created by a web application, like an ASP.NET or PHP application. For all users, static content presents the same data. While dynamic content can provide user-specific data like the user name and other things.IIS’s main responsibility is to host a webpage by processing, storing, and providing users with web pages. IIS also supports SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) in addition to HTTP (FTP). We’ll learn how to configure IIS Web Server on Windows Server 2019 in this tutorial.

Configure Windows Server 2019’s IIS Web Server

  • Start the Server Manager and select Add roles and features to setup the IIS Web Server.
  • Role-based installation can be selected on the Select Installation Type page by clicking the next button.
  • Select the destination server on the Select Destination Server page, then click the next button.
  • Click on next after selecting the Web Server(IIS) role.
  • Select the services you want to install with your web server on the Role Services page.
  • Finally, click install after confirming the installation role.

Restart the system after the installation is complete. Open your browser and go to the server IP to verify that the webserver is operational; if it loads, the IIS Web Server was successfully installed.


These are the fundamental procedures for configuring the IIS web server. These Web servers are often useful for serving static HTML web pages or content. When compared to an application server, it uses less CPU or memory and offers a runtime environment for web applications. The process of adding a static website to this IIS Web Server will then be discussed. Remain tuned.
