  • Hi Muthukumar,

    To make internet facing site you just have to extend your default web application to Internet zone web application using Central Admin > Application Management > Create or extend web application > Extend an existing web application

    After above procedure it will be automatically appeared in AAM settings Internet zone site.

    To publish this site on internet you can use ISA ,please refer -

  • hi

    first of all you need to register public domain name at your ISP and point this domain name on your server's IP (it should have external static IP). After that you need setup this domain name both in alternate access mapping and in IIS manager for your Sharepoint site. In IIS manager you need to set host header for this URL. If you use IIS6 It can be done in Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) manager > properties of your site > Web Site tab > Advanced > Add host header. Select All unassigned port 80 and enter your URL. In IIS 7.0 it can be done in IIS Manager click on your site and select Bindings in the Actions category in the right part of the window.

    After that you need to configure authentication. If you use windows authentication (Central Administration > Application Management > Authentication providers), it will still work for users who access site from internet. Also you can create FBA version of your site and/or enable anonymous access to it (but be careful with the last action - you should plan it before to enable it on the web application).
