I know how to stop a website or application with IIS 6. Right-click on the site and select Stop:
However, the option to stop a website doesn't seem to exist with IIS 7.5. I can't find it, anyway.
Since it seems reasonable that one would have the capability of stopping a website, it must be there. But where? If I right-click on the website there is a "Refresh" selection, but if that does a stop followed by a start it still doesn't halt at stop very long. I want to be able to shut off the website.
