IIS in Windows 10
From what perspective do not look at Windows 10 in today's realities, and this operating system, as was one of the best of its kind, will remain so, at least for the reason that it has a huge number of versatile programs, applications, functions and scripts, which everyone can use. But despite the huge amount of "everything" that takes place in this system, there are those moments that confuse PC users because they are in some way "hidden" and not fully functional. That's why, we decided to consider one of these cases today and tell about IIS in Windows 10, so that you have the opportunity to realize the more globally functional features of this product and the basic principles of its operation.
If you do not know the abbreviation "IIS", then in the decrypted version, it sounds like: "Internet Information Service". Thus, it becomes clear that iis is a set of tools designed to help the user: create sites, edit sites and manage these same sites. In addition, the Internet resource created by you, will consider your PC to be a real hosting, which allows you to personally deploy an Internet project of almost any complexity. If necessary, several sites can safely exist on your "hosting" and at the same time, each resource will have its own management settings.
Why is the IIS service in Windows 10 not active?
The IIS service in the tenth generation system is, as it were, present, but is not fully installed and as a consequence, it is disabled. Many PC users believe that it was not done wrong... But only if you understand the situation, then there is no mistake, but only there is a simple calculation, which amounts to the fact that the developers of the OS have disabled not necessary for the work in everyday life of the service, so how they are used by only 5-10% of users from the total mass working with the system and in addition, specifically the service iis has the specificity of "biting off" part of the power of the computer. Thus, if the PC is not very powerful, it will simply not be possible to work with it in parallel with the fully functioning function of iis.
