We are using a GoDaddy issued SSl certificate for the site. Yesterday our certificate has expired and I have issued a renew request.

I have renewed the certificate according to a manual on GoDaddy and have added a newly issued certificate to a server certificates store in IIS. I have also deleted the old, expired one.

Still when I am visiting our SSL-enable page from office computers, I get the expired-certificate browser warning.

Is it just the certificate cache on our machines, or has I not finished the certificate configuration on the server?

You can check this yourself by going to and clicking on one of the three sign up plans. It should take you to an SSL-enalbled page that has a certificate error at my side.

UPDATE: After the server restart an SSL page is unavailable at all.

Your site is not accessible at the moment. Note: try executing IISRESET to make sure IIS reloads all settings. – Marco Miltenburg Oct 19 '11 at 18:25

The problem is resolved now. It was due to the fact that besides installing a new certificate to a Server Certificates list in the IIS root, I needed to select a new certificate in a web site https binding.
