I have a custom Content Management System that is also the framework for a medical bill pay and appointment info web portal.
Currently I use a wildcard certificate to handle the SSL. So we are Company ABC, we use the domain companyabc.com for all of the 25 plus clinics. www.clinicA.com
gets content from http://clinicA.companyabc.com
. It is displayed in the borwser as www.clincA.com
until any page that requires https is called for then it gets a <a target=_top... so that it will show the SSL info correctly.
This has been fine for the last 7 years or so. I have sitemaps listed for each subdomain and google results show the link as the sub domain http://clinicA.companyabc.com
What I would like to do is correctly have google index the site using their real domain www.clinicA.com
I can't do a multi-domain SSL Cert because we don;t own the domains, the clinics do. I can't use host headers because all of the clinic sites are served from one website, I can't bind more than one SSL to the same port.
What I need is a way to have google treat the sub-domained sites like they are www.clinicA.com
