European IIS 8 Hosting - Amsterdam :: Application Initialization Module IIS 8

clock August 16, 2013 08:01 by author Scott

Today post will cover about one of IIS 8 new feature. It is called Application Initialization module. Activating it allows you to enable the following capabilities:

  • Starting a worker process without waiting for a request (AlwaysRunning)
  • Load the application without waiting for a request (preloadEnabled)
  • Show a loading page while the application is starting

To enable these features

1. Set the startMode on the application pool  to AlwaysRunning.

      <add name="DefaultAppPool" autoStart="true" startMode="AlwaysRunning" />    

2. Set preloadEnabled to true on the web application.

      <site name="Default Web Site" id="1">        
       <application path="/">          
        <virtualDirectory path="/" physicalPath="%SystemDrive%\inetpub\wwwroot" />        
       <application name="AppInit" applicationPool="DefaultAppPool" preloadEnabled="true">          
        <virtualDirectory path="/AppInit" physicalPath="c:\inetpub\wwwroot\appinit" />       

Changing the startMode to AlwaysRunning will start the application pool and initialize your application the moment your IIS server is (re)started. So users that visit your site don’t have to wait because the worker process is already started.

By setting preloadEnabled to true, it starts loading the application within that worker process without waiting for a request.


European IIS 8 Hosting - Amsterdam :: IIS 8 Server Name Indication

clock August 9, 2013 08:35 by author Scott

Server Name Indication (SNI) is an extension to the TLS protocol that includes the hostname during the handshaking process. This allows for a web server to host multiple SSL-enabled web sites using one IP address. Prior to IIS 8, it was not possible to use this capability in IIS.


SNI is enabled in IIS by default. To use this capability, simply provide the appropriate hostname in the configuration of the HTTPS binding for a site.

Each HTTPS binding that you would like to use SNI with should have the host name provided. All bindings should have the option for "Require Server Name Identification" checked except fot the site you would like to act as the "default" HTTPS site. Just as is the case with HTTP bindings, this is the site that will be used when a client does not provide a host header as part of the request. If you do not have at least one HTTPS binding with the option unchecked, IIS Manager will issue a warning informaing you of that fact.


Before using SNI with IIS 8, you should be aware of the client requirements for this to work properly. Specifically, the TLS library used by an application must support SNI and the application must pass the hostname to the TLS library when making requests. The following web browsers support SNI:

  • Internet Exmplorer 7 or later running on Windows Vista or later
  • Google Chrome (6.0 or later requird if running on Windows XP, 5.0.342.1 or later if running on OS X 10.5.7 or later)
  • Mozilla Firefox 2.0 or later
  • Safari 3.0 or later (Vista or later and OS X 10.5.6 or later)
  • MobileSafari running on iOS 4.0 or later
  • Opera 8.0 or later
