Notes

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using "Run as" to perform this procedure.

Does not verify the port number or IP address of an Web site, and it does not verify that these bindings are unique within the server. If you create a site with invalid or conflicting bindings, the site will not start.
