One of the IP/Port combinations for site '144935731' has already be configured to be used by another site. The other site's SSL configuration will be used.
Cannot register the URL prefix 'http://22.214.171.124:80/' for site '1050148382'. The necessary network binding may already be in use. The site has been deactivated. The data field contains the error number.

the problem is that you cannot bind to web site with the same ip/port and the error is documented on your post "the web stie 144935731 have the same ip/port of the web site 1050148382" so you have 2 solutions:
1° change ip or port for the web site 144935731 and use a unused ip or port
2° use host header
I suggest to use limited ip number (1 is enough) and use host heder take a look here

I assume you just stopped the site but didn't change the ServerAutoStart property. Every site is started automatically after an IISRESET if you don't set ServerAutoStart to false.
Here is how you do it:
Check if ServerAutoStart is enabled for the default site:
\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil get w3svc/1/ServerAutoStart
Set default site to not start automatically:
\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil set w3svc/1/ServerAutoStart false
Hope this helps.

one thing you can do as well is to take a look at what's registered in HTTP.sys as well by using their HTTPCFG.exe tool. Examples on usage can be obtained on Technet at
and to be clear on Thomas' post -> sites are restarted if ServerAutoStart = 1 (true) when you restart the W3SVC (which IISRESET happens to be able to do).
