In my new SP 2013 farm, the first webapp I created worked fine when I created the root site collection and disabled loopback check and gave backconnectionstringnames in the regedit.

I had to delete the web app and then I installed some farm solutions and created a new web app

But now the web apps just deosn't work.

The mysite web app works fine, but any other web application I create just doesnt work. I tried to create one after another. I tried creating one on port 8080 as well, doesn't work.

I have checked the bindings and supplied the host name and IP address there.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The only screen I see when I run the new sites is "This page can't be displayed"

there are couple of ways to create Web Application.

Using Server Name and Port number.( with this you cant have multiple web application on same port)

Using DNS a record.

  • Create a DNS record and point it to the WFE
  • Now create the Web application
  • use DNS record as Host header
    • port 80( if you want to use it port 80)
    • Now create Root Level Site collection
  • Browse the Site using the DNS a record
