In IIS I need to map www.example.com and example.com to use a specific SSL certificate. I have tried using appcmd and editing applicationHost.config but I don't see how to tie each host-header to a specific certificate. If I add the bindings in the config file and then look in the UI, no certificate is applied to bindings.

The certificate is for www.example.com but has an alias for example.com.

I've solved the question using this post. Basically adding an * to the beginning of the friendly name of the certificate will allow you to edit the host header for a HTTPS binding in IIS7 manager.
