Its a challenging work and a lot of things needs to be done in this.

1. To get the IP address, either you should have static ip address and you should be knowing beforehand or send a request to the server where you should have a .aspx or server side page and write this code Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"] that will return you the ip address.

2. To get the .NET framework version, you can use Environment.Version.ToString(), if not get it using this approach -

3. Creating a website on the server remotely through program needs low level access and admin permission to your application. Read this article

Hope this helps.
