SSL and multiple websites

In IIS 6.0, Under "Web Sites" I have the "Default Web Site" and other sites setup.  Structure like this:

        Web Sites
               Default Web Site
                       SubSite1
                       SubSite2
               Commerce
               Testing

If I wanted to purchase an SSL, would I have to purchase one each for Default Web Site, Commerce and Testing?

Can't I purchase one that covers the entire machine?

If I purchased one for Default Web Site, would it then work for SubSite1 and SubSite2?

I went to www.verisign.com and the $prices started adding up.  If you have any advice for good places to buy SSLs that would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Hammer

You can purchase only one cert for default website if it is going to be

www.xx.com/commerse
www.xx.com/testing

You need to buy the cert with the name www.xx.com. In the first you need to have link which redirects to commerse or testing

If it is going to be www.xx.com and www.yyy.com then you need to have two cert for two sites.

Hope this helps
