    IP ADDRESS CONFIGURED ON IIS TO ACCESS WEBSITE
    public IP address of VPS. 

    Sounds like you need to go back to a computer networking book first.

    IIS won't be able to bind to the public IP address in most cases, as when Windows boots up it should be assigned a private IP address. IIS can only bind to such private IP addresses, or all unassigned, https://docs.jexusmanager.com/tutorials/binding-diagnostics.html#background

    It would be the responsibility of a gateway to forward traffic from the public IP address to the private IP address. And for real world services, both public/private IP addresses in use should be fixed (or dynamic under certain strict conditions).

    Hope the above is not too much for you to digest.
