Redirecting one SSL domain/site to another SSL domain/site that do not share a common namespace
Posted on 2014-09-18
I am not a web developer, just a systems administrator. I have a client using IIS 6.0 to host a secure website with SSL/TLS encryption.
My question is this- is there any way to have the following setup:
1 certificate with the following common name: web.domain.com and two web sites that users can go to in their web browsers without a certificate warning popping up:
site 1: web.domain.com
site 2: web.domain2.com
Is there some magic that can be done to redirect the user from web.domain2.com to web.domain.com without web.domain2.com on the certificate and not have the user's browser throw a certificate error for web.domain2.com?
From a security perspective this seems shady, but I am wondering if it is technically possible.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
