I'm new to SharePoint. I have installed SP 2013 on my local machine for testing & development purpose. While studying key concept about SharePoint i have come to the Alternate Access Mappings. I have googled and read articles but i didn't understand anything at all. Please help me to understand below concepts.
What is AAM in simple words?
What is Internal Urls ? What is Public Urls? What are Zones?
What is purpose of AAM? What is the need of it? In which case we need to configure it?
I have created one web application and access it as http://pc2:1001. Now how can i implement AAM on it to access this with different urls?
I'm really confused. Please help somebody. Any help will be appreciated.
