Exchange 2010 OWA Default IIS Sites, Host Header

I just did a clean install of Exchange 2010.  I created A and MX records in my DNS Server to forward traffic to my Exchange Server.  Traffic is being forward correctly.  

Exchange creates a number of default sites in IIS.  These are virtual directories.  The part I am not sure about is how to assign one of the virtual directories, under the Default site, a host header?  Or do I need to create a new site?  Creating a new site - point it to the owa physical folder, give it the host header/name? Would I select http or https? If I select https I am required to select a value in the SSL Certificate drop down.  If I select "Exchange Server" SSL Cert I am getting a message "This binding is already used by a product other then IIS.  If you continue you might overwrite the existing cert for this ip address:port combination".
