Microsoft Internet Services

If you are looking for Microsoft Internet Services, you have come to the right place. We explain what Microsoft Internet Services is and point you to the official download.

What is Microsoft Internet Services?

The Internet Information Service is actually three types of servers all rolled into one – A Gopher server, a Web server, and a file transfer protocol (FTP) server. Although being a modular and integral part of the Windows installation, it is only found in higher end editions of Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (though it is present in all Windows Server products) and it is not usually turned on when Windows is installed. To access its features, the Internet Information Service must first be turned on. Similar in concept to the server software used by Apache and Sun Microsystems, the IIS is fully part of the Windows Server line, resulting in, according to Microsoft, faster and more efficient web page loading.

So what is the IIS? For one, with this service you can actually use Microsoft FrontPage, the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) webpage editor. This is a powerful tool used to create fun websites without the need to actually get down to the nitty-gritty and code each line. Users can also utilize Microsoft’s ASP (Active Server Page), where interactive applications can be embedded right onto a page using ActiveX technology.
