Limiting Allowed Concurrent Connections to a Website using IIS

In some cases, some web site administrators will want to limit the number of concurrent connections available for a certain website to prevent the site from becoming overloaded and suffering from decreased performance, or for development purposes. This can be easily accomplished through Internet Information Services.

Step 1

Navigate to Start -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
