    Hello Annie_P,

    IIS stands for Internet Information Services, a windows server-based application or a web server that runs on Windows OS and is responsible for delivering web content over the internet to an end-user. As It belongs to Microsoft, it is compatible with windows server products.

      The name "IIS" refers to Internet Information Services, a general-purpose webserver that runs on the Windows operating system. The IIS accepts and answers to client computer requests, allowing them to share and distribute information across the LAN (or Local Area Network) such as a corporate intranet and the WAN (or Wide Area Network) the internet. It hosts applications, webpages, and other common services required by users, and it allows developers to create websites, applications, and virtual directories to share with their users. A web server offers users with information in a variety of formats, including file exchanges as a download, uploads, images files, HTML pages, and text documents.

      Webservers are often used as a portal for sophisticated and highly interactive websites, as well as programmes that connect middleware and back-end applications to create enterprise-grade systems. AWS, for example, enables media businesses such as Netflix to provide real-time streaming video. Amazon web services also provide public cloud administration via webservers. In general, IIS is contrasted to Apache, which is another type of web server that is freely available to everyone. We may simply say that both work the same way, except that the apache web server can be used on practically every operating system, including Windows, Linux, and Mac, whereas IIS is only accessible for Windows.

      However, IIS connects with Microsoft's other technologies, such as the.NET Framework and the ASP programming language. IIS has its own helpdesk to manage and resolve issues, whereas Apache webserver support is nearly entirely provided by the user community. Furthermore, IIS contains security features, making it a more secure and efficient solution than Apache.
