The Windows Server operating system contains a tool called Internet Information Services Manager, better known as IIS, that helps you use your hardware as a web server for hosting a site. When configuring your IIS settings, you have the option of using an SSL certificate to encrypt the transmissions from and to your server. If you want to reverse this, any administrator can remove the SSL certificate and disable the encryption.
