How to make a site collection accessible via its own or separate URL

  Asked By: Noemi    Date: Jan 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1080

I believe there is a way take a site collection and assign a URL to
it? Is it not? Basically our developers has developed an application
to be part of a site collection and we want people to be able to get
to it through its own URL. How can i do this?

Site collections don't get their own top level URLs generally,
it's web applications that do.

DNS in conj with Host headers/redirection in IIS?

Though I would never recommend it, you could also use "host-named site
collections" to do this,
technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc288637.aspx. They seem to
be a bit of hybred and some normal SharePoint things don't work the same
with them. I'd avoid them if possible, but they do what you're looking
