IIS is an extensible web server created by Microsoft for use with the Windows family of products. IIS supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SMTP and NNTP. It has been an integral part of the Windows NT family since Windows NT 4.0, though it may be absent from some editions (e.g. Windows XP Home edition), and in some cases is not active by default.
