In SharePoint 2010, when I create new web applications I gave the name of SharePoint web applications like sharepoint-81,sharepoint-82... and after application created, in IIS also name of the applications created like below.

  • sharepoint-81
  • sharepoint-82

Here I am facing difficulties in IIS I can not found which application related which hostname,

Here how can I change the SharePoint web application name and it also applies in IIS?

It's not possible. The ServerComment property is a read only value. Instead, you will need to delete the Web Application (and thus it will delete the IIS Site), then recreate it with the name you desired.
