Multiple root sites on port 80

You can create multiple root sites on port 80 within SharePoint 2010. This is accomplished by creating subsequent Web applications using port 80. When this is implemented, you do not need to configure friendly name.

The steps to accomplish this are as follows:
1. During the Web application creation process, specify port 80 and enter a host header name on the creation screen.

2. Create a DNS host entry specifying the host header name used in Step 1 as the host name. Use the same IP address as the first host.

3. Create a new site collection using the new Web application.

4. You should now be able to access the new site collection using http://<host headername>.

5. If your first Web application did not utilize a host header, you will need to go into IIS and edit the site binding for the initial Web site created on port 80. A binding entry should be listed with a blank host name. Edit that binding and enter the server name or desired rootname as the host.
