I am managing a web site with a URL of www.mysite.net
on Windows 2003 server. I installed a SSL certificate with a common name on the certificate of www.mysite.net
. If the user types https://www.mysite.net
in the browser no problems. But if they type https://mysite.net
or mysite.net then I get a security alert warning that the NAME ON THE SECURITY CERTIFICATE IS INVALID OR DOES NOT MATCH THE NAME OF THE SITE.
I talked to Verisign about this and they said I can do a URL redirect. But they did not offer any support because they said this is out of their scope. Does anyone have an idea how to do this?
By the way I am using IIS 6.0 to manage the website with.
