  • IIS6.0 - SSL traffic redirecting to the same site using Wildcard

    Hello,
    I have multiple sites hosted on IIS 6.0 using host headers that I need to secure using SSL. Because of the host headers, I am not able to purchase a certificate for each domain. It appeared that I need to purchase a wildcard certificate for these domains and just change the sub-domain for each host header value.

    Well, the wildcard can only be installed on a single site. Attempting to install the wildcard on multiple sites will cause a conflict and make the site shutdown (stop). Also, once the wildcard certificate is installed on one site on the server, when navigating to https for any other site on the server, it directs you to the original site that the SSL was installed on. This is not the expected behavior and am hoping that there is a fix to this. In case I am not clear, please see the example below:
    --------Begin Example---------
    - Server1 hosts 4 sites (SiteA, SiteB, etc...) on IIS6.0 using host header values.
    - SiteA has SSL wildcard installed on it (*.xyz.com). Navigating to SiteA, using the subdomain (SiteA.xyz.com) over 80 & 443 works fine.
    - Once this is done, navigating to SiteB (SiteB.xyz.com) over 80 works fine. But when navigating to SiteB over 443 causes SiteA to show up on 443.
    --------End Example------------

    Does anyone know the correct way to set this up so that all sites on the server appear correctly when going over 443? Thank you very much for taking time to read this.
