Difference between Application Pool and WebSites in IIS

An application pool is a collection of websites running as a single process, with a single identity. You can have multiple websites running under a single application pool, but you can not have a single website running in multiple application pools. Splitting websites over application pools allows more rigid security between the sites, as well as preventing one website from crashing if another one does. The benefit of combining multiple sites into a single application pool is to either share resources, or to leave a smaller server footprint on the server.
