Hi all,

I have a single IIS 7 site, responsible for three different domains.  Each domain needs to point to a different directory.  Also, I would like to automatically redirect the the "https://www" root for any requests that come in.

Domains and Mappings:
1)  domain1.com -> https://www.domain1.com/sub1/
2)  domain2.com -> https://www.domain2.com/sub1/domain2.aspx
3)  domain3.com -> https://www.domain3.com/sub1/domain3.aspx

Can anyone assist me?  I'm trying to get URL re-writing to work, but have been unsuccessful so far.  Maybe there is a better alternative?

That helps for handling multiple domains within one site.  The next issue is that the certificate I have is a multidomain cert from GoDaddy.  It covers the www subdomains of the domains listed above.

I want to make sure that no matter what someone enters, they are taken to https://www.domainX.com and the appropriate path listed above.

Hello,

please check the below script use to rewrite the http request to https using the MS URL rewrite
You can place it under the web.config

<system.webServer>
<rewrite>
<rules>
<rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true">
<match url="(.*)" />
<conditions>
<add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
</conditions>
<action type="Redirect" redirectType="Found" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" />
</rule>
</rules>
</rewrite>
</system.webServer>

For the above rewrite rule yes it will work but you need to note that "require SSL" has to be disabled in IIS. Personally I like IIS to enforce this. You can 2 sites in IIS one a http one a https site and redirect from http site to the https site.  I consider this a better solution and teh best of both worlds.

More details here at point "4. Redirect to HTTPS" in this blog by Microsoft employee, Ruslan Yakushev, who helped write the URLrewriter in IIS
