Windows Web Server 2008 R2 is a powerful Web application and services platform. Featuring Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5 and designed exclusively as an Internet-facing server, it offers improved administration and diagnostic tools to help reduce infrastructure costs when used with a variety of popular development platforms. With included Web Server and DNS Server roles, as well as improved reliability and scalability, this platform allows you to manage the most demanding environments - from a dedicated Web server to an entire Web server farm.
This review is from: Microsoft Windows Web Server 2008 R2 SP1 64-bit
Pros: Lower cost than standard version
Other Thoughts: The Web Server Edition is for people who need to run an IIS6/7 website with ASP but don't want to spend the money on a full Standard Edition. The setup was pretty straight forward. Web Server also includes DNS. This might be important for anyone who wants to setup a one machine hosting provider and doesn't have other machines to handle DNS or the technical knowledge to install a third party DNS server.
