I was looking at the reasons for closing some questions as off topic and I was wondering why the Microsoft web hosting technology IIS was exempt from the list as mentioned in the answer to this question.

Have I misunderstood or is it just an oversight?

1 Answer 1


IIS is a web server like Apache, which happens to have a 1st party GUI control panel to control the web server. This is not at all comparable to cPanel etc.
