Folks! I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine running IIS 7. I'm attempting to create a website that will use SSL. When I create the website, I choose "https" as 'type', "443" as Port and the correct IP address, but I'm unable to enter the 'Host name' information. I am able to enter the 'Host name' if I choose "http" as 'type' and '80' as port. I have a few questions: 1. Is the inability to enter the 'Host name' for a 'https' binding an IIS 7 design or am I doing something wrong? 2. If I'm doing something wrong, how do I enter the hostname information? 3. If I leave both types ('http' and 'https'), does 'http' automatically act as a redirect to https or do I need to configure something else so that it will redirect? Thanks, in advance, for all your help! - Charles
@Jason Taylor is correct. There can only be a single HTTPS site using 443 per IP address so the host name field is completely grayed out and ignored. You can add 2nd and 3rd IP addresses or use non-standard ports to have multiple SSL sites on one server.
