Ok so im incredibly new at server construction
I am using an HP Proliant Server
With Windows Server 2008 R2
AD DS and DNS
I have my DNS up after much trouble in itself with establishing the zones.
When I go into IIS I have created an application pool with acess to a user instead of pass through (since pass through wouldn't work)
When I add my website who's domain name is pointed at my DNS everything in test settings works and when the website loads in browser it comes up empty. I even opened the firewall for port 80 I've tried just about everything and I do not know what I am missing.
Right now i have the application pool identity with the access When i add new site I test the settings and they are green then I enter my site
www.mysite.com as the host and proceed.
I basically copied the entire index files and everything off our old host so the website it's self should be good but nothings working

Did you do a default installation of IIS under roles and features or did you go through and select some of the features? It sounds to me like some of the features that you need may not be installed.

I installaed all the IIS related features, I'm thinking it's that my DNS Server isnt resolving the names right
I don't really know what i've done wrong with that

To rule out DNS, you can set the values in your local hosts file to override DNS for testing:
Does it work when you try it after adding the info to your hosts file?
