SharePoint Creating web application

SharePoint Creating web application

A SharePoint 2013 web application is composed of an Internet Information Services (IIS) web site that acts as a logical unit for the site collections that you create. Before you can create a site collection, we must first create a Web application. Each web application is represented by a different IIS web site with a unique or shared application pool. we can assign each web application a unique domain name. When you create a new web application, you also create a new content database and define the authentication method used to connect to the database. In addition, you define an authentication method to be used by the IIS Web site in SharePoint 2013.
