Web applications enable you to isolate content. When you use multiple Web applications, separate sites and databases are created, which enables you to:

  • Provide separate content for anonymous and authenticated users.

  • Set different limits for Recycle Bin settings.

  • Optimize performance of the databases.

  • Control access and authorization at the Web application level, regardless of what permissions are granted on individual sites within the Web application.

The following tasks are part of managing Web applications:

  • Create or delete a Web application

  • Configure settings for a Web application
