I have a Windows 2003 Server hosting two separate domain name websites. (site1.com and site2.com). The server also hosts email (exchange) for both domains.

When we connect to the site using HTTPS we receiving an error saying our website is not private. I applied a self signed security certificate originally but I would like this message to go away. I have looked into purchasing a SSL Certificate from a 3rd part vendor like Network Solutions.

i was going to go with the Xpress. Would this be adequate? Would I need two - one for each domain or is that not possible when both sites are hosting under one Windows Server?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, it looks as if Network Solutions' XPress certificate will work just fine for you.

Yes, you'll need one certificate for each unique domain name you want to protect.
