SSL Certificate configuration issue

Have Server 2012 running IIS6 (no Exchange) - wanted to renew SSL. Bought one from GoDaddy, create CSR request, installed certificate ok, completed CSR request.
In IIS --> Sites --> Default Website, changed Bindings to select new SSL certificate, all is looking ok and certificate is listed in IIS Manager however when i go to browse https internally, i get the browser stating error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN.
Not sure where I went wrong.
I performed the "Create Certificate Request" in IIS Manager and followed GoDaddy instructions on specifying "Common Name" + "Organization" etc.. so
Resarted IIS Services and even restarted Server, same issue.

Does the common name on the certificate resolve to the correct DNS name you are looking at?

i.e. if you ping does the correct IP address reply?

Remember if you have a public FQDN as your common name you may need to setup split DNS to view it internally (without an error)
