There are many ways to accomplish this task.

Easiest way, go to the root of the website, create a subfolder called Project A and move everything there.

Alternatively, you can do it by changing the root of the website to a blank folder then creating a new Virtual Directory called Project A located at the old location.

Then there is the smartest way using the URL Rewrite module, however this is the most complex method.

You would create a new virtual directory in the IIS management console and specify the appropriate path.
