how to redirect a secure site to www

Last Modified: 2015-08-21
I have an SSL key for 'www.site.com' When users go to 'www.site.com' everything works just fine. When users go to 'site.com' they are presented with a certificate error message. My site is running on Windows Server 2008 R2 (IIS 7.5) how can I configure IIS so that all attempts to 'site.com' are redirected to 'www.site.com' ?

I have tried to use the HTTP Redirect function but when I enter 'https://www.site.com' into the destination field and test I get an error that the page cannot be loaded.

I have tried to use the URL Rewrite function but nothing appears to happen.

Any suggestions?
