IIS Server Sub Application Hosting Or Folder Level Hosting

Introduction: In IIS Server so many numbers of applications can be hosted as child applications under one main application. Domain bindings did at the main application, the same domain can be used by child application with their folder path as URL. Let say the "" domain is assigned to the main application.
