Yeah a FQDN is tied to the SSL cert. If you want to Have https://ron.com <https://ron.com/> and https://jill.com <https://jill.com/> that's two certs. Now if you just need certain forms for the sites secured they can be like https://genericsite/ron https://genericsite/jill Ron Oglesby Senior Technical Architect RapidApp Office 312.372.7188 Mobile 815.325.7618 email roglesby@xxxxxxxxxxxx -----Original Message----- From: Timothy Mangan [mailto:tmangan@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, November 13, 2003 2:38 PM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] Re: FW: SSL Certificate question There is a way to do what you want either way. I don't really know the details, but my hosting site offers either individual certificates, or a cheaper method where multiple sites share one cert. I seem to remember that for the share to work, the FQN was the hosting sites name, and those that bought into the share had to use a folder under the share. (i.e. I can buy https://www.myname.com <https://www.myname.com/> and they host it, or for less money I can get https://hostsitename.net/myname). Sorry I don't know the details beyond that. Timothy R.

A Client of mine has a web server which is serving multiple intranet sites. running on IIS. He wants some sites secured by SSL and others not (all of the sites on the same machine). I thought that an SSL cert was bound to a machine for a specific FQN. So if thats the case will he need to purchase multiple SSL certificates? Any clarification would be appreciated. Thanks, Tony.
