If we are working on asp.net mvc project and if we have to share the project with our team member for testing then we can host the application in local machine IIS, then we can share the running application URL to our team member.
For this task we can do like this
Step 1: Open IIS using Inetmgr from run window
Step 2: make ensure that IIS is working fine.
Step 3: Open the VS 2010/2012/2013 and create the Asp.net MVC application and make ensure that application is bugs free.
Step 4: Open the Solution explore and Select the application like this below Image
Step 5: then select the properties of application or press Alt +Enter
You will get the screen like this, then select the Web and Server as given below screen shoot
Step 6: Click on “Create Virtual Directory”. It will create the virtual directory in IIS 7.0.
Step 7 : Now go to the IIS 7.0 and Do like this image as shown below
Step 8: Click on browse option as shown as above image . You will get output running on localhost as given below image
Now you can share the above URL to your team member for testing.
I hope it will help to somebody who has not hosted the site in IIS 7.0

I tried this but i got the error and error is
HTTP Error 401.3 – Unauthorized
You do not have permission to view this directory or page because of the access control list (ACL) configuration or encryption settings for this resource on the Web server.
I think there is the problem with folder permission. Have you given the folder permission to your project ? You share the folder with all users.
