SSL Host Headers in IIS 7.x

In order to leverage host header capabilities with SSL enabled sites you need to use a command line tool as the IIS GUI management tool does not allow you to bind multiple SSL sites to the same IP.

The ‘appcmd’ executable is in the following path %windir%\system32\inetsrv

The syntax is:

appcmd set site /site.name:"Site Name" /+bindings.[protocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:site.name.com']
